Be part of history in action! Travel back in time to the most exciting and inspiring periods in American history. Action-packed and historically accurate, All About America covers the most important periods in the history of a burgeoning nation, from Colonists and Independence to The Civil War, and from Cowboys and the Wild West to the early inhabitants, the Native Americans. With detailed reconstructions and original artwork from each period, find yourself immersed in the incredible action, as you confront the redcoats, catch gold fever, journey West, and ride the trails, your trusty lasso at your side. Welcome to cowboy country, where hard work is a way of life, a cowboy's hat is his most essential possession, and the best shot of all time was a girl named Annie. From empty grassland, Texas slowly became an open range for ranchers and their cattle, eventually leading to the cowboy life for many adventurers and laborers. Although the cowboy era only lasted through the 1800s, its myths, legends, and magic live on. Cowboys and the Wild West investigates how cowboys lived, worked-and got into trouble-taking the reader deep into the heart of the American West, across the open buffalo plains of lone cowboys and through the saloon doors to mingle with infamous outlaws in shady frontier towns.
