About the SeriesAction-packed and meticulously researched, with specially-commissioned illustration, detailed reconstructions and original artwork from each period, reading lists, and resources for further study, this series is an immersive introduction to the history that shaped America.
Very few images conjure up the adventure and romance of American history like the cowboy, but real-life on the range was not easy. Academically researched and engagingly written, this examination of cowboy history brings the frontier to life, from the danger of the stampede to rustlers, outlaws, the coming of the Iron Horse, and the end of the open plains as ranchers fought for control of the land. Along with the familiar aspects of cowboy life like the cattle drive, and equipment like saddles and guns, this title also covers lesser known subjects like the role of women on the plains, and the important part played by African Americans and Mexican immigrants. Packed with original photographs, illustrative montages, dynamic reconstructions of historic events, scenes, and locations, and highlights of some of the Wild West's most notorious personalities, this non-fiction gem is sure to inspire hours of historical exploration and discovery.
