"Those who appreciate the impact of history will be impressed with the selection of articles." --Nebraska History

Designed for survey courses--yet in-depth enough to support intensive discussion--these seventeen classic essays traverse the history of the American West, from women's property rights in Spanish-Mexican California to the Sand Creek Massacre of 1864, from homesteading and mining to the Great Depression and World War II. Provocative and illuminating.
