Description
Dee Brown, the foremost popular historian of the American West, has been exploring its "true history" for over 50 years in some 30 books and dozens of historical articles. Known for his forceful and well-documented narratives, Dee Brown changed the way we look at the West. Without a political or ideological axe to grind, he has stripped away familiar stereotypes and romanticised images, he has always shown us the Old West as it really was. The 25 works in this collection span 100 years of history. Brown includes pieces on noted figures such as Lewis and Clark and Geronimo, stories of the Pony Express riders, longhorn ranchers and cowboys, and women who were brought to the West to marry miners and ranchers. He offers accounts of the Trail of Tears, the Santa Fe Trail, western settlement, the Plains Indians, war and peace between whites and Indians, and an assortment of intrigues, crimes, and scandals. Containing some of Brown's best work, this book will captivate readers with an interest in a perennially fascinating chapter of our history.
