Discover the saga of the American West -- from the adventures of Lewis and Clark to the massacre at Wounded Knee. Here is an original and exciting new guide to the fascinating story of the American West. Superb color illustrations offer a unique and revealing "eyewitness" view of this rich history. See Jim Bowie's famous knife, a Pony Express rider's saddle bag, a Pawnee warrior's shield, a goldminer's scale, and a Wells, Fargo stagecoach. Learn how sod houses were built, who was called "Little Sure Shot", how Geronimo was finally captured, who the Buffalo soldiers were, what was the "Golden Spike", and what "Seeing the elephant" means. Discover the dangers of a trail drive, how Buffalo Bill got his name, how Custer was defeated, how to pan for gold, who the mountain men were, and much, much more.

Review:

The folks at DK have almost single-handedly rejuvenated if not reinvented the often moribund world of non-fiction books for children. [Eyewitness series] (Newsweek) ...a mini museum between the covers of a book. [Eyewitness series] (The New York Times) These books' striking visual impact will draw in even the most casual readers. [Eyewitness series] (School Library Journal)
