Despite recent interest in the history of the African American West, we know very little about how the African American past in the West has been depicted in a full range of imaginative forms. Hoo-Doo Cowboys and Bronze Buckaroos advances our discovery of how the African American West has been experienced, imagined, portrayed, and performed.

"Johnson thoughtfully examines how African Americans staked their claims to a region and a genre that have traditionally been hostile territory. In doing so, he has produced an engaging book whose wide-ranging source material provides something of value to anyone interested in African American history, literature, and cinema."
--Jennifer Thornton, The Journal of African American History
"Carefully researched and richly interdisciplinary, Michael K. Johnson's Hoo-Doo Cowboys and Bronze Buckaroos: Conceptions of the African American West has much to teach us about how the black West was perceived and performed. Dancing across and beyond the twentieth century and engaging a wide range of print texts and audiovisual material, this is a valuable work of recovery and reevaluation."
--Eric Gardner, author of Unexpected Places: Relocating Nineteenth-Century African American Literature
