The prose of this book isn't the most interesting but it is straightforward and easy to understand, with lots of fun anecdotes about things that happened in the Wild West. Jeremy Agnew provides a look not just as prostitution itself but the context in which so much prostitution occurred and the effect that it had on the culture and economy. My only complaint would be that prostitution is treated with such detachment.
It explains who these women were, their reasons for becoming prostitutes, the types of establishments of prostitution, the conditions under which the women worked, and problems associated with sexually transmitted diseases and contraception.

Life was hard in the Old West as young men flooded the frontier looking for work in an environment where they vastly outnumbered women, leading to a golden age of brothels run by savvy madams. These photographs from the 19th Century American Frontier show prostitutes inside their bedrooms, mingling with potential customers and scarlet women showing off their wares for the camera.
