This wonderful collection of true tales by a noted storyteller presents a lively, historically accurate, and often surprising picture of America' s Wild West.

Kids set out with Lewis and Clark in search of a route to the Pacific; join Narcissa Whitman and Eliza Spalding, the first white women to cross the Rocky Mountains; ride with the Pony Express; shoot it out with the Earps and the Clantons; head north to strike it rich in the Klondike; and share all kinds of other exciting adventures as Americans push westward. Arranged chronologically, the unfolding tales give readers a highly entertaining history of the American West.
