Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon.com
There are source notes, quotation notes and an index in back of the book - the book is a marvel and I enjoyed it from cover to cover. You will also. Share it with your kids and friends. This book is about America, especially after the Civil War - the good, the bad, and the ugly. Next time you think of a native American Indian or a buffalo, or take a train or drive a car out west - you'll remember this book for sure. Yes there are movies, TV series (Gunsmoke comes to mind), memoirs (think "Vanishing Arizona", but "Which Way to the Wild West" is an original retelling of our American story you don't want to miss.
