In 19th century America, the great surge westward by settlers eager to open up the frontiers and take advantage of as-yet unknown natural resources. This extraordinary story is detailed in this fact-filled and illustration-packed reference featuring specially commissioned photographs of surviving weapons, implements, tools, and equipment, as well as Native American artifacts. The text, also illustrated with rare period photos, describes how explorers, homesteaders, the lawless and lawmen, buffalo hunters, railroaders, and others lived-and often fought-with each other and the Native Americans beyond the Mississippi to the Pacific Ocean and from the northern territories to the Mexican border.
