From dust jacket notes: "The art of photography has been developing for more than 100 years, and for his Taming of the West the author has selected from his collection of several hundred thousand glass wet-plate negatives some two hundred of the most outstanding to depict the westward movement in America from 1850 to 1900. Unique photographic reproductions portray the migration west from its beginnings in the East, the struggle to carve a new life in a new land, and the efforts to realize the truly American Dream, giving substance and reality to a vital segment of American history. The Taming of the West reveals not only the expansion of a nation but also the growth of a people, their aspirations and their achievements, their defeats and their victories. This spectacular visual document records in exquisite detail the toil and sweat of miners and farmers, the fever of gold-rush Alaska, the pride and resignation of the Indian - unheralded people who tamed the land, quite unaware that they were effecting a major transformation in American history. The Taming of the West is a pictorial social history of the men and women who forged westward, leaving their pattern on the land and the imprint of the land on our culture...." Hardcover, black cloth with silver titles, 10.8 x 13.9 inches, 232 pages, illustrated with some 200 historic photographs; Index.
