From wagon trains and the Gold Rush to Little Big Horn and the massacre at Wounded Knee, Into The West captures the clash of cultures that defined western expansion-in a compelling saga that brings American history to vivid life.
Great characters, VERY good read.
I watched the tv epic, then bought the book because there are so many characters, I couldn't keep track of them and finally listed them and who relates to who on the inside back cover of the book. A sad tale of the complexities of cultural clash -- colorful characters. A good read.
