The term "Wild West" brings to mind certain images: cowboys, settlers, gunfights, and outlaws. But the American West wasn't always as wild as popular images and stories often suggest. Its famous heroes were sometimes its villains or vice versa. In this informative volume, young readers will learn facts that bust the myths of the Old West, bringing a more realistic and diverse angle to tales of cowboys and Indians repeated in books, television shows, and movies throughout the years.
