Dee Brown follows the frontiersmen into the American West. His earliest guides are the Spaniards, the first Europeans to explore the American Southwest. But instead of another chronological history Dee Brown tells the story through the experiences of afew influential Westerners, people like Jedidiah Strong Smith, Susan Magoffin, Brigham Young and Sitting Bull. It is primarily a story of movement -- the of the early explorers, of the trappers and fur traders, the "Forty-Niners," the builders and operators of stagecoach and mail services, telegraphs and railroads, and the Indians they pushed before them. The paintings of George Catlin, on friendly terms with the Indians, are among the 32 color and black-and-white illustrations. Detailed maps depict the events described in the book.
