The saga of the West, the most American part of America,
has always fascinated. John Selby's thoroughly researched
book is a mammoth tour of the United States,
concentrating on the colourful and the dramatic. In it
are to be found the exploits of Daniel Boone, Meriwether
Lewis, Kit Carson and John Fremont; the treks of the
Mormons, the pioneer work of the mountain men, the
missionaries and the miners and the subjugation of the
Native Americans. Here too are the dramatic incidents of
American history conveyed with a startling immediacy: the
Alamo, the Bear Flag Revolt, the Fetterman Massacre,
Custer's Last Stand, Wovoka's Ghost Dances and Wounded
