edited by Susanne George Bloomfield and Eric Melvin Reed

“The stories do more than relate interesting tales. They are windows to the world west of the Mississippi as it transformed from wilderness to a land of farms and cities, from the preserve of Indians to a land claimed mostly by white settlers. . . . [Readers] will appreciate these stories for their adventures, pioneer spirit and colorful characters.”—Omaha World-Herald

"[T]he stories are uplifting and teach the value of honesty, pluck, hard work, and true grit."—KLIATT

“The various writing styles and authenticity of subject matter make these stories an excellent way to introduce students to American West culture.”—True West
