Synopses & Reviews
Shorn of the 400-plus images that illustrated the TV tie-in edition, the text of The West is an outstanding work of scholarly synthesis and a feat of storytelling. It is a book that will enthrall readers of popular history as well as students of the North American West. Essays by seven noted writers and historians, complement Geoffrey Wards compelling narrative.
For the first time in paperback comes the magnificent, copiously illustrated companion volume to the landmark PBS television series. 400+ illustrations, many in full color.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 435) and index.
