Collection Review: A Graphic History of the American West
“Using a graphic-novel format, this series recounts key events in the dramatic history of the American West. While Lewis and Clark, Alamo, and Little Bighorn provide information about well-known individuals (Sacagawea, General Custer, et al), Pony Express, Gold Rush, and Oregon Trail focus on lesser-known figures. Packed with well-rendered, colorful drawings, the stories are brimming with action. . .”
