Synopsis

An exhilarating account of the American West is at once a complete anecdotal history & a compendium of western lore.

It shows what life on the frontier was really like. Lewis vividly depicts the pioneers, the onrush of the cattle barons, the coming of the lawmen & the tragic demise of the Plains Indians.

Heroes & villains including Sitting Bull, Doc Holliday, Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid, Crazy Horse & Custer are often revealed in a startling new light, & a host of minor characters are rescued from obscurity.

The West also pays full homage to the part played by women & African-Americans, & includes a mass of intriguing & fascinating detail.
