Cathy Luchetti has written extensively about the Western Frontier.

Earlier books have combined archival photographs and text based on diaries and journals of the overland travelers in frontier America from the mid 1800s to 1915. Each book was conceived as a theme—women, children, cooking, evangelists, men, medicine, courtship practices—and developed by visiting archives around the country. I read hundreds of journals, old letters, and diaries written by the pioneers. I studied thousands of old photographs, then combining them into the documentary style narratives on the west which have been published over the last 31 years.
