American West based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This truly magnificent book recreates with a weatlth of rare pictures and vivid authoritative text, the tremendous epic of the American West. As sweeping, spirited and many-sided as its subject, the book portrays the Old West in all its variety, from the days of the first pioneers to the final passing of the frontier. Based uon a lifetime of enthusiastic study by the authors and many years of collecting rare illustrations, The American West is a veritable treasury of Western life and history. The book represents a most skillful blending of pictures and printed word.( over a 1000 pictures )
