Description

History--with the good bits put back. Discover the drama, discoveries, dirty deeds and derring-do that won the American West.

With a storyteller's voice and attention to the details that make history real and interesting, Steve Sheinkin'sWhich Way to the Wild West? delivers America's greatest adventure. From the Louisiana Purchase (remember: if you're negotiating a treaty for your country, play it cool.) to the gold rush (there were only three ways to get to California--all of them bad) to the life of the cowboy, the Indian wars, and the everyday happenings that defined living on the frontier.
