Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Among humankind’s great adventures was the settlement of the American west. James Arnold and Roberta Wiener look beyond legendary exploits and the romanticized image of the west to describe the daily life and practical concerns of pioneer settlers. They draw on diaries and letters to show us ordinary people of modest means living lives of astonishing courage and resourcefulness. Through meticulous research and an eye for the telling detail, the authors have captured the experience of making a fresh start in a new land. Discover exactly what it took to create a home, and a new nation, out on the frontier.”
