The History of the American West PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The History of the American West free pdf Their names live on in the imagination: Geronimo, Sitting Bull, Custer, Jesse James, Wyatt Earp, Buffalo Bill. There was a time when any kid could have told you everything about those names, which he would have learned from 'Cowboys and Indians' films and comic books. Exaggerated myths and legends were born from those films and comics. Here at last is a book that gives us the true stories and biographies in fascinating detail. The book describes the pioneers' hardships, transport from horse to railroad via covered wagon, pony express, stagecoach and steam boat- the Indian Wars, leading to the massacre at Wounded Knee- bank raids, train robberies and the shoot-out at the O.K. Corral- and the development of the gun by two men, Samuel Colt, whose work shaped the production and use of American firearms, and Oliver Winchester, inventor of the repeating rifle. An all-encompassing history of the Wild West!
