About this book
An illustrated, single-volume history of the American West. Brown is the bestselling author of "Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee". *Also appeared in January Buyer's Notes*
As the railroads open 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. Dee Brown here illuminates the struggle between these three groups as they fought for a place in this new landscape.
