I like the format which is organized into alphabetical order making it an easy read. It is also filled with black and white photographs. The end of this volume also has maps and a bibliography. This book covers such a wide range of material that this short review cannot do justice to this volume. This text covers all aspects of western history including the growth of numerous western towns, the development of the railroads, the numerous conflicts and wars, including the civil war and many Indian Wars. It also has detailed information on most the numerous Indian Tribes and their Chiefs. I have a special interest in the law men and gun fighters of the west and this book lists all of them with a short biography about each one. Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp, John (Doc) Holiday, Wild Bill Hickok and many other famous western characters are listed in this amazing historical volume. I am sure you can pick up this book for a bargain price on Amazon.
If you are interested in the history of the American West this book is for you. It is also a fantastic reference source for anyone seeking information about the American West.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Tactical Principles of the most effective combative systems).
