Men in Eden William Drummond Stewart and same-sex desire in the Rocky Mountain fur trade

Open All Close All

http://schema.org/description

  • "The American West of the nineteenth century was a world of freedom and adventure for men of every stripe-- not least those who admired and desired other men. Among these sojourners was William Drummond Stewart, a flamboyant Scottish nobleman who found in American culture of the 1830s and 1840s a cultural milieu of openness in which men could pursue same-sex relationships. Through Stewart's letters and novels, Benemann shows that Stewart was one of many men drawn to the sexual freedom offered by the West, providing a tantalizing new perspective on the Rocky Mountain fur trade and the role of homosexuality in shaping the American West."
