THE WILD WEST. 365 DAYS is a day-by-day adventure following the story of outlaws and cowboys, gold rushes and saloon shootouts in America's wild frontier. Beginning with the promise of Manifest Destiny, buckskin adventurers opened the American frontier to a steady stream of settlers. The lure of land rich in minerals, fertile for farming and grazing, and plentiful with buffalo bred an all-out obsession with heading westward. It takes the reader back to these booming frontier towns that became the stuff of American legend. Author Michael Wallis spins a colourful narrative, separating myth from fact, in 365 vignettes.
