The American West
As the railroads opened up the American West to settlers in the last half of the 19th Century and cattle ranches spread from Texas to Montana, the Plains Indians made their final stand.
Eminent Western author Dee Brown here illuminates the struggle between these three groups as they fought for a place in this new landscape. The result is both a spirited national saga and an authoritative historical account of the drive for order in an uncharted wilderness, illustrated throughout with maps, photographs and ephemera from the period.
'With unerring eye and unflinching irony, Brown shows how history, myth and business worked hand in hand ... as loaded with nuggets as the stream bed at Sutter's Mill.' New York Times Book Review
