Summary
  • "The time of westward expansion in the 1800s has become a legendary era in American history. Tales of cowboys, outlaws, and frontier adventures still resonate in popular culture. The Wild West [series] separates myth from reality, bringing to life the triumphs, tragedies, and colorful characters that shaped the West. Learn how this eventful period in US history helped make the nation what it is today." -- Page [4] cover
  • In the 1800s, traveling to the West could be dangerous. Horse-drawn wagons were slow, and Native Americans were not always friendly. In the 1840s, plans for a transcontinental railroad were proposed. When gold was discovered in California in the 1850s, the dream started to gain backers. Discover the story of this stage of our country's history
