    4 of 4 people found the following review helpful: A great way to read history!, April 9, 2001 Reviewer: dorritg from Ben Lomond, CA USA This is a terrific book for anyone that enjoys history but is not looking for a detailed, academic analysis. This book lets you learn about the old west from the people that lived there. It contains excerpts from a wide variety of primary sources including newspaper articles, letters, and diaries. You'll recognize the names of many of the people whose stories appear. There is also plenty of material written by people who never became famous, but who do have stories to tell about real life in the west. This book did what all good books should do - it left me fascinated and wanting to learn more.
