See what life was like for the colonists who made the journey across the wilderness, and the natives who were confronted by these newcomers. You can also meet the cowboys who lived their hard, lonely lives driving cattle across vast distances, and outlaws like Butch Cassidy and Billy the Kid, who chose to live by their guns rather than by more honest means. This volume vividly captures the atmosphere of the Wild West, with fact-packed text, funto- do projects, detailed illustrations, photographs from the times, images from the movies and the real facts.
