About this title


A photoessay examines of the role of African-Americans in the settling of the Western frontier during the late 1800s, from the homesteaders and cowboys to the civil rights crusaders and rodeo riders of the period.

From Booklist:

Gr. 3^-6. Schlissel describes the experiences of some African Americans who helped settle the American West. She focuses on mountain men, homesteaders, soldiers, cowboys, and scouts, explaining their contributions to the taming of the frontier. Her subjects range from familiar heroes (Jim Beckwourth, Nat Love, and Bill Pickett) and businesspeople (Barney Ford, Mary Ellen Pleasant, and Biddy Mason) to infamous eccentrics (Stagecoach Mary and Isom Dart). She also includes an excerpt from a dime novel, Arizona Joe, that features a leading black character, Ebony Star. Good-quality period photos and black-and-white reproductions appear on nearly every page, adding human interest and realism to the text. An excellent addition to black history or westward movement units, this can be paired with Daniel Chu's Going Home to Nicodemus , the story of one African American frontier town. Kay Weisman
