Not an exhaustive study or history of the era, but good starting point and pretty much all you need, if you just have a passing interest in the subject. The book does focus alot on Native Americans and their wars and interaction with the settlers, soliders and ranchers. Overall a facinating glimpse into a facinating era of American history. Dec 15, Eric Molicki rated it really liked it Shelves: history. We head out west in a month and this has provided a good general 30k foot overview of western history.

The writing is dated, but the photos are excellent and the right amount of detail is given most of the time to keep the flow moving. Dec 23, Sherri Anderson rated it it was ok. What a snooze. Hard to keep awake reading this book. A few interesting facts but it was the stories never heard before about famous people that kept me going what?

Very enjoyable read, and looking forward to more of the same. Oct 07, Cathy rated it really liked it.
