Our popular image of the American West is that the cowboys were the heroes, Native Americans were the villains, women were frail and treated like property and trans people didn't even exist.

Guest: Peter Boag, Washington State University history professor and co-curator of 'Crossing Boundaries: Portraits of a Transgender West'
