Way West by Professor James A Crutchfield
Book DescriptionThe history of America is, at its core, the story of the American West. In this new volume from the Western Writers of America, readers are taken deep into the true stories that helped America form its identity, and the people that embodied its essence. James A. Crutchfield, a long-time WWA Secretary-Treasurer and seasoned historian, has assembled a remarkable cadre of contributors in "The Way West." Included are winners of the Owen Wister Award, given for lifetime achievement in literature on the West: * David Dary explores the network of trails that lead explorers West* Bill Gulick recalls the Steamboat days of the Pacific Northwest* Leon Claire Metz goes deep into John Wesley Hardin's world* Robert M. Utley shows us the true faces of the Texas Rangers* Dale L. Walker takes us on a tour of the final resting places of forty of the West's most celebrated figures."The Way West" covers many of the now obscure individuals and long-lost tales of our storied past and gives new insights into famous characters and events of this legendary era. So join the Western Writers of America on a journey back in time and lose yourself in the colorful history of the American West.
