Overview

How the West Was Won by Louis L'Amour

They came by river and by wagon train, braving the endless distances of the Great Plains and the icy passes of the Sierra Nevada. They were men like Linus Rawlings, a restless survivor of Indian country who’d headed east to see the ocean but left his heart—and his home—in the West. They were women like Lilith Prescott, a smart, spirited beauty who fled her family and fell for a gambling man in the midst of a frontier gold boom. These pioneering men and women sowed the seeds of a nation with their courage—and with their blood. Here is the story of how their paths would meet amid the epic struggle against fierce enemies and nature’s cruelty, to win for all time the rich and untamed West.

I saw the movie "How The West Was Won" years ago. I enjoyed the movie which the book was based on so knew I would like the book. Though I knew the plot I did enjoy reading about how the west was won in a story form. The charactors were as they were in the movie but I was just as entertained reading about it as I was at the movie. I find L' Lamor has a way of bringing the old west to us in a way that takes us there and it is our history even though it is in fiction. This is a book that is lite and very enjoyable.

I read this book about two months ago. I don't remember much, so stick with me. I read this book because I thought that it would be about war. It is, But its about people settling in, too. This Book clearly shows how life was back in the 1060's

I received this ebook as a gift from my sister and I have really enjoyed it. I hate to do any chores because this book is so good. I would recommend it to everyone. A true western but with interesting characters.

Readers will thoroughly enjoy the many families struggles in this epic story. Through their own faults, hardships and tragedy, generations are explicitly told by an undeniably great author in Louis Lamour. Read it!
