"The American West" centers on three subjects: Native Americans, settlers, and ranchers. Dee Brown re-creates these groups struggles for their place in this new landscape and illuminates the history of the old West in a single volume, filled with maps and vintage photographs. In his spirited telling of this national saga, Brown demonstrates once again his abilities as a master storyteller and as an entertaining popular historian.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Michael Kammen Pulitzer Prize Winner, New York Newsday A galloping, anecdotal narrative of the trans-Mississippi West from the Civil War to the turn of the century.
Allen Boyer The New York Times Book Review With unerring eye and unflinching irony, Brown shows how history, myth and business worked hand in hand...as loaded with nuggets as the stream bed at Sutter's Mill.
Richard Slotkin Author of Gunfighter Nation Dee Brown's The American West is popular history at its best: well and vividly written, with a clear and sympathetic eye for both the landscape and human characters of the ranchers, settlers and Indians of the West.
