From Lewis and Clark’s monumental 1803 expedition to the showmanship of Buffalo Bill, the story of the American West is epic in scope, full of amazing tales of tragedy and triumph. Lavishly illustrated with vivid photographs and intricate maps, The Old West is the definitive history of a time and place that forever lives in legend.

Brimming with outlaws, miners, cowboys, Indians, railroad barons, and more, the characters of the Old West come alive in these dazzling pages, capturing the imagination and inspiring exploration. Travel with fur traders and trappers through the Pacific northwest; read accounts of brave pioneers heading west along the Oregon Trail; see 19th-century technology progress as the golden spike connects the East and West coasts; and watch the rise and myth-building of the American cowboy unfold. Exciting, dramatic, and entertaining, this unforgettable book honors the colorful history of our nation’s past.

Comments about National Geographic The Old West:

I homeschool my son who is now 14 years old. We started buying National Geographic books for his History lessons a couple years ago. This was the first one we purchased. He loved it. After he reads one or two chapters I require him to give me an oral report. He can talk forever about what he has read. We have since purchased two other books that he has read and will be purchasing another one within a few days. I just have to find out which one he wants next. These books are amazing. There is so much interesting information and beautiful pictures. It is so interesting to learn about things that we were never told about. These are books that he will pass down to his future children. Highly recommended!
