Frontier towns

Jericho takes a piece of Industrial Revolution history and makes a Western in Yorkshire. As Clarke Peters notes, frontier towns are not so different all over.

It’s an interesting historical point, people working at the frontier, a long way from civilisation, often because they have nowhere else to go. Since Clarke Peters is in both, see also the asteroid mining in Outland for a different genre context, a rather involved background for a used-future remake of High Noon.
