Publisher Comments:

andlt;Iandgt;The American Westandlt;/Iandgt; centers on three subjects: Native Americans, settlers, and ranchers. Dee Brown re-creates these groups struggles for their place in this new landscape and illuminates the history of the old West in a single volume, filled with maps and vintage photographs. In his spirited telling of this national saga, Brown demonstrates once again his abilities as a master storyteller and as an entertaining popular historian.

Interweaving the stories of Native Americans, ranchers, and settlers, Brown re-creates the triumphs and the tragedies of the times. Sharply drawn profiles focus on Sitting Bull, Geronimo, Billy the Kid, Pat Garrett, Wyapp Earp, and others. Photos & maps.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [417]-443) and index.
