An engaging guide to the history and culture of Western America Part of the "Wiley Desk Reference" series, "The American West" provides a comprehensive reference to US history and culture west of the Mississippi River, from pre-Columbian times to the present day. In addition to vivid narrative entries on fascinating subjects like Coronado, the Hudson Bay Company, the Colt Peacemaker, Barry Goldwater, and Microsoft, it includes approximately 100 eyewitness accounts of Western life set off in boxed sidebars. Culled from diaries, letters, and newspapers, the first-person accounts trace the story of the West in the words of its participants. "The American West" fills the need for an authoritative, one-volume popular reference on the American West.
