    Wow what a book recording the history of the American West through the guns that were used to conquer the native Americans I hate the term Indians it is demeaning and then remove the outlaws and gunmen who threatened the peace and held back civilisation.

    great book, coffee table size with tons of photos of great old guns, many of the guns photographed were dug at some western site and are old rusted relics that really saw action in the old west A lot of history packed into this book, the photos make your mind race back to the era of the old west and how these tools of the westerns were carried and used on a daily basis.high reommendation

    An outstanding book about firearms in the 19th century west The hundreds of period photographs alone make this a great addition to ones library The book is full of first hand accounts of the guns in use It provides many hours of just looking at photos and reading the first hand accounts of western life Perhaps the best book available on the subject.
