This is an older book but it is a fine addition to the collection of any person interested in understanding the individuals and the events that shaped the development of the western United States. It is a brief synopsis of individuals and events beginning shortly after Lewis and Clark and continuing through the 19th century. It provides information that is helpful to begin to understand this part of our history and is thus useful as a starting point to guide further research in more definitive sources. It is easy to read and I readily recommend it to anyone interested in U. S. history.
