American History of the Wild West A fascinating 10-part documentary series!

AN INCREDIBLE HISTORICAL OVERVIEW A beautifully packaged collector s item!

Saddle Up for a Rousing Look at the Wild West!

The American West featured all sorts of legendary historical figures from pioneers and scouts to lawmen, outlaws, gangs and gunslingers, to the American cowboy, and pioneering women on the frontier.

  • Wild Bill Hickok Parts 1 & 2
    o James Butler Hickok (a.k.a. Wild Bill) was the most notorious man in the Wild West. A gunfighter, gambler, civil war spy, Indian fighter, peace officer, Hickok was said to have killed more than 100 men but the real total was closer to 10. Widely recognized as the man, who won the first classic gunfight on the streets of Springfield Missouri in 1865. He was shot dead in Deadwood South Dakota ten years later. This DVD explores the man, the myths, and his legends like nothing else you have ever seen.

    o Wyatt Earp carved his initials deep into Old West lore as a peace officer in Dodge City, Kansas and Tombstone, Arizona. With a pistol in hand, a badge on his chest, and his brothers by his side, Earp delivered a personal brand of frontier justice. But at a legendary place called the OK Corral, his dead aim left his reputation forever tarnished.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing! March 9, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got this to show my 8th graders. It mentions that it has professional actors portraying the famous characters. This is just a film of black and white, blurry photographs. No actors. I am sending this back. For middle school students, this would be a complete snooze-fest.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Historical Documentary April 25, 2012
Format:DVD
Be transported into the wild and wooly past of the American Wild West! In this fascinating 12 documentary collection, you'll find history, lore and biographies of the lives and times of those who populated the Wild West. The American West featured all sorts of legendary historical figures from pioneers and scouts to lawmen, outlaws, gangs and gunslingers, to the American cowboy, and pioneering women on the frontier.

I like this DVD set. I agree, it's far from being perfect, but I like it. I like watching old documentaries, learning more about the past, learning more about History. What I like about this set is that it covers a lot of subject you don't usually find on DVD. From legendary outlaws to the great Indian wars, this DVD is full of interesting and fascinating information about America's past and the Wild West. The narrator is a little boring, and sometimes the information is repetitive, but overall it's gonna be a good addition to your collection. The price of this set is great (I got it for only 5$),and like I said earlier the amount of information given to us is impressive, so I don't regret this buy. If, like me, you're interested in History and the Wild West then buy this set, you won't regret it.

The documentary is 9 hours long, in 12 parts:

- Wild Bill Hickok - Parts 1 & 2
James Butler Hickok (a.k.a. Wild Bill) was the most notorious man in the Wild West. A gunfighter, gambler, civil war spy, Indian fighter, peace officer, Hickok was said to have killed more than 100 men but the real total was closer to 10. Widely recognized as the man who won the first classic gunfight on the streets of Springfield, Missouri in 1865, he was shot dead in Deadwood, South Dakota ten years later.

- I can't imagine that the producer and distributor of this DVD dare to release such a product. The photos and movie clips are so faded that they're hardly visible on my 32 " Sony monitor. (It's not an HD TV. However, it displays sharp pictures from other movie DVDs). This is absolutely unacceptable.

- Moreover, there is only one narrator. His voice was so monotonous that after hearing him for 30 minutes, I felt asleep!

It's a shame on Mill Creek Entertainment for distributing this. I own another DVD from them called "America's Serial Killers. Portraits in Evil". It's much better.

In short, this documentary is worth nothing. It's one of the worst video ever.

This documentary is a TRUE DOCUMENTARY. Something you won't find on TV nowadays, and as a true historian, with a college degree to prove it, this documentary is amazing. Look at what the people who disliked it gave as proof, the narrator's voice was boring?? it didn't contain tom cruise reenacting a mostly made up script from a 'directors vision'?? give me a damn break, if you love history, you will want this DVD as I did, and watch it several times over.
