Reviews

"An engaging chronological medley of anecdotes about the Wild West in nine lively chapters starting with the Louisiana Purchase and ending with the Lakota massacre at Wounded Knee in 1890." --School Library Journal

"Super illustrations, fresh stories, thoughtful insights with a light touch, this is fun for kids and parents alike." --Travelforkids.com

"Sheinkin builds his conversational narrative around stories of the men and women who peopled the west, with particular attention given to African Americans, Chinese workers, and everyday farmers and cowboys. There's plenty of humor here, but Sheinkin's strength is his ability to transition between events." --The Horn Book

"An accessible and engaging historical overview." --Kirkus Reviews
