Why the West was wild a contemporary look at the antics of some highly publicized Kansas cowtown personalities by Nyle H Miller( Book )
5 editions published between 1963 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 459 libraries worldwide
Kansas cowtowns were the principle shipping centers for Texas trail herds from 1867 until 1885. The world remembers these places chiefly for their extreme violence and for the men who supposedly cleaned them up. Much of what is known of this facet of the West's history has been decidedly slanted, knocked askew by a host of writers who have failed to look into first-hand accounts of the actions they were recreating. The following pages are presented in the hope that some of the misconceptions about cowtowns, and especially about the men who were the law there, can be corrected and knowledge of the Wild West brought into a proper focus

The collection also contains material from Malin's days as a graduate student at the University of Kansas (Lawrence); this series also includes transcripts of Malin's grades and a United States atlas published by Frank Hodder that Malin used & in which he wrote notes. A significant portion of the collection relates to his teaching career. Malin taught courses dealing with the history of Kansas, the history of the Trans-Mississippi West, general United States history, and various seminars. Another part of his collection consists mainly of notes pertaining to his research. Material dealing with Malin as a writer makes up a large series containing 12 units. Most of this series consists of articles, book reviews, chapters of books, and essays he wrote. A much smaller sub-series consists of various documents dealing with Malin's writings. The 2nd unit is made up of his copyright certificates. The 5th unit consists of mailing lists for copies of Malin's writings. The 6th unit consists of lists of his writings. The 7th unit consists of general lists of works that include writings by Malin. The 9th unit consists of papers dealing with his efforts to have some of his works published. The 12th unit consists of a few miscellaneous papers that relate to Malin's writings. A number of writings by others appear in the collection, but papers handed in to Malin by his students are not included. A second, smaller subseries consists of lists of writings by people other than Malin. Malin's own research notes contain much information on Kansas history. He had a great interest in demography and population. Major correspondents included George Anderson, Lee Benson, Allan Bogue, Avery Craven, Earle DeLay, Larry Gara, Frank Hodder, Hans Jenny, Kirke Mechem & Nyle Miller of the Kansas State Historical Society, Fulmer Mood, and W.T.
