Read by Matthew Kugler.
H. W. Brands tells the story of settling the American West, from fur trading in Oregon to the Texas Revolution; from the California gold rush to the Oklahoma land rush. He shows how the migrants' vivid dreams drove courage, perseverance, and outrageous acts of violence. The West was where riches rewarded a miner's persistence, a cattleman's courage, a railroad man's enterprise; but El Dorado was as elusive in the West as it ever was in the East.
