How the West Was Won Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

They came by river and by wagon train, braving the endless distances of the Great Plains and the icy passes of the Sierra Nevada. They were men like Linus Rawlings, a restless survivor of Indian country whod headed east to see the ocean but left his heart—and his home—in the West. They were women like Lilith Prescott, a smart, spirited beauty who fled her family and fell for a gambling man in the midst of a frontier gold boom. These pioneering men and women sowed the seeds of a nation with their courage—and with their blood. Here is the story of how their paths would meet amid the epic struggle against fierce enemies and natures cruelty, to win for all time the rich and untamed West.

Synopsis:

Based on the screenplay of the 1962 film classic, L'Amour presents the brave saga of the men and women who pushed relentlessly forward--despite nature, savage enemies, dangers and death--to win the wide, shining lands of the rich and untamed West. Reissue.
