      Lost Treasures of the American West. The old American West was a wild place. It was an era full of cowboys, gunslingers, outlaws, and wars. The European settlers driving the expansion into the west faced many hardships. They had to force their way to the Pacific Ocean by driving the Native Americans away from their lands.. The American West always has been, and remains, a place where Americans go to reinvent themselves. These days, we’re not doing westward expansion and homesteading anymore, but new movements and reinventions of old forms tend to pop up here, things like craft brewing or co-op farming. The West still harkens to a sort of rugged individualist.

      Book Description: Two eminent historians, Robert V. Hine and John Mack Faragher, present the American West as both frontier and region, real and imagined, old and new, and they show how men and women of all ethnic groups were affected when different cultures met and clashed.
