Publisher's Summary

The romance of the West is built on an endless armature of shootouts and train robberies, cowboys versus Indians, white hat versus black, and everybody versus the wilderness. From John Colter's harrowing escape from the Blackfeet to Hugh Glass' six-week crawl to civilization after a grizzly attack, from Custer's final moments to John Wesley Powell's treacherous run through the rapids of the Grand Canyon, Cowboys, Mountain Men, and Grizzly Bears takes the top 50 wildest episodes in the region's history and presents them to the listener in one convenient, narrative-driven package.

Good Book

This book is a large collection of short stories. The narration seems robotic but it didn’t take away from the story telling.

This book has given me some new characters to find other books on.

Entertaining trip through western history

This is the first time I’ve felt like I needed to submit a review.
Very entertaining trip through the history of the American west, covering nearly all of the 1800’s.

The stories are quick, entertaining, and memorable. Narrator does a great job and sounds like a gruff cowboy who’d be telling these stories over a campfire along a cattle trail.

Very well done.
