History doesn't have to be boring. Which Way to the Wild West? tackles the taming of the American Frontier—from the Louisiana Purchase to the Lewis and Clark expedition and the California Gold Rush—with a storyteller's eye to plot and character development. You'll learn what life was like on a wagon train, the real reasons settlers moved west in the first place, and meet the heroes and villains of the Indian Wars. Carefully researched, with a generous helping of primary source material, this is the whole messy story of America's Manifest Destiny—heart-wrenching, hilarious, and utterly true.
