The West has figured in the American imagination under many guises: as the last best place on earth, a refuge, an escape, a land of opportunity, but also as a place of conquest and failure. Where Lewis and Clark saw great possibilitis, Native cultures found disappointment and loss. This collection presents the diverse and often contradictory accounts that make up the mosaic of the ninteenth-century American West.
