"Brokeback Mountain" exploded the myth of the American cowboy as a tough, gruff, and grizzled loner. "Queer Cowboys" exposes, through books by legendary Western writers such as Mark Twain, James Fenimore Cooper, and Owen Wister, how same-sex intimacy and homoerotic admiration were key aspects of Westerns well before "Brokeback'"s 1960's West, and well before the word "homosexual" was even invented.
Forty years ago, most Americans said they didn't know anyone who was homosexual and claimed to know little or nothing about homosexuality. Today, there's hardly a sitcom without a prominent gay character, movies like "Milk" and "Brokeback Mountain" have won Oscars, and even "People" magazine celebrated the marriage of Ellen Degeneres and Portia DeRossi.

Rocky and Hudson were the first to show that not everything in the Wild West was gunfights, saloons, and high jinks on trusty steeds-there was room for poetry, flowers, parties, and romance. Illustrated in a style reminiscent of underground cartoonists of the 1960s, this book is a collection of the madcap comic strips that turned the familiar trope of the Old West on its ear.
