Description
When the American West was first being settled, everyone wore whatever hat was available. But John Stetson, a hatmaker who had followed his dream of going West, invented a wide-brimmed, high-crowned hat that quickly became the most popular hat west of the Mississippi. This unusual biography, illustrated by Caldecott Honor winner Holly Meade, captures the little-known story of the hat that has come to symbolize the West--and the man who invented it. Full color.
