Exhibit item:
Wild West Weekly, 1908

The appetite for tales of the American frontier proved to be a "gold mine" for publishers of pulp magazines during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Few publications rivaled the success of Wild West Weekly. From its origins in 1902, through its run of 644 original stories, the adventures of the magazine's hero Young Wild West, a youth "of medium height, handsome of face, and with the form of an Apollo," brought readers of all ages weekly tales of Indian wars, train robberies, buried treasure, cattle rustlers, and grizzly attacks set against the backdrop of the American West.
