Overview

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.
