An Illustrated History

Author: Liz Sonneborn

  • AGES 9 - 12 
  • Genre Non-Fiction
The history of the American West is the story of Lakota warriors, Spanish conquistadors, German farmers, African American cowboys, Morman settlers, Chinese railroad workers, and many more.

The real story of the American West begins when the Ancient Ones were in the West in about 50,000 B.C. The native cultures developed for thousands of years to clash eventually with the Europeans looking for wealth and converts. From the East came explorers looking for land for the new United States.The promise of easy gold lured more settlers.This thrilling story is told in first person accounts and narrative. Hundreds of pieces of art depict people, artifacts, and the changing face of this varied region.
