Frontier Slang, Lingo & Phrases - - By
Owner/Editor of Legends of America
Autographed From the wild
and woolly mining camps, to the rampages of the Civil War, to the many
cowboys riding on the range, those frontier folks often used terms and
phrases that are no longer used in everyday language today. Yet other
words and sayings were often specific to certain regions and never used
across the states. These terms, as in the past, are still sometimes heard
in specific areas, but are “foreign” to the rest of us.
From the pages of period newspapers, books, and century old dictionaries
comes the slang, lingo, and phrases of the American Frontier. Even if
you're not looking for a definition, you'll get a peek into the charm and
character of a historic era. In addition to the hundreds of words and
phrases, readers will also enjoy more than 150 vintage images.
