The Way West: How the West Was Lost and Won DVD

SKU: 2902
$35.00Price

Between 1845 and 1893, the American West was lost and won – wound with ribbons of iron and wire and brought within the dominion of the United States – while, along the way, the lives of hundreds of thousands of Native Americans were violently disrupted and all but destroyed. This mesmerizing six-hour documentary series from acclaimed filmmaker Ric Burns (The Civil War, Coney Island, New York), chronicles the final astonishing decades of the American frontier from the time of the Gold Rush until after the last gasp of the Indian wars at Wounded Knee.
