THE LAST AMERICAN FRONTIER: The History of the 'Far West', Trials of the Trailblazers and the Battles with Native Americans

Longueur: 344 pages5 heures

Description

The exploration, settlement, exploitation, and conflicts of the "American Old West" form a unique tapestry of events, which has been celebrated by Americans and foreigners alike—in art, music, dance, novels, magazines, short stories, poetry, theater, video games, movies, radio, television, song, and oral tradition. Many historians of the American West have written about the mythic West; the west of western literature, art and of people's shared memories.

Frederic Logan Paxson was a Pulitzer Prize winning American historian and an authority on the American frontier.
