Fact and fiction of the Wild West / by Martha London ; content consultant, Thomas Andrews, PhD.

London, Martha, (author.). Andrews, Thomas G., 1972- (consultant.). Core Library (Firm) (Added Author).

"Books, television shows, and movies have illustrated the adventures of cowboys, sharpshooters, and outlaws of the Wild West. But many popular stories about the American West have gotten some facts wrong and left others out altogether. Fact and Fiction of the Wild West dives into the myths about what life was like for settlers and Native American peoples in the West and brings the truth to light. Easy-to-read text, vivid images, and helpful back matter give readers a clear look at this subject."-- Provided by publisher
