Publisher Description

As the railroads opened up the American West to settlers in the last half of the 19th Century, the Plains Indians made their final stand and cattle ranches spread from Texas to Montana. Eminent Western author Dee Brown here illuminates the struggle between these three groups as they fought for a place in this new landscape. The result is both a spirited national saga and an authoritative historical account of the drive for order in an uncharted wilderness, illustrated throughout with maps, photographs and ephemera from the period.

Review
Richard Slotkin“Author of ”Gunfighter Nation“Dee Brown's ”The American West" is popular history at its best: well and vividly written, with a clear and sympathetic eye for both the landscape and human characters of the ranchers, settlers and Indians of the West.
