As it has throughout American history, the American West still holds a huge fascination for audiences around the world. Drawing from National Geographic's incredible trove of photographs--some iconic, rarely or never-before-seen--this dazzling quintessential American collection continues in the tradition of the bestselling Through the Lens and Image Collection. Official companion to a museum show running simultaneously at ten museums in the West, this book evokes the richness of our national identity and resonates with cultural import. National Geographic photographers have documented the American West for 120 years, telling stories of time and place, people and wildlife, crisis and change. This collection of images, unavailable anywhere else, is the very best from National Geographic's 10.5-million-image vault.
