The American Frontier - Pioneers, Settlers and Cowboys 1800- 1899 by William C. Davis is in very good condition with dust jacket. The binding is a little lose on the front bottom and there is a little staining on the bottom of the pages from water. A very good hard back for reading and none of the information is lost. Great photos of the frontier west, cowboys, guns and gear. This copy is published in 1992 by Salamander Books, London. This a first edition and maybe a first printing hardback.  

In The American Frontier, historian William C. Davis chronicles the history of the territory beyond the Mississippi, with particular attention to exploration, expansion, conflict, and settlement. In 1804 the frontier of the "West of opportunity" was St. Louis, from which Lewis and Clark set out on their journey of discovery. Their first bold steps provided the key to the greatest adventure of them all, inspiring the emergence of a nation in a momentous century of migration and settlement. The American Frontier portrays their lives through artifacts from the collections of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, Cody, Wyoming. Gathered and displayed for the first time in more than thirty outstanding color spreads, they provide a timely, memorable evocation of frontier America, showing both the legend and the reality of the West as it has never been seen before.

The author of The "Fighting Men of the Civil War" now masterfully chronicles the grand history of the territory beyond the Mississippi, with particular attention to exploration, expansion, conflict, and settlement. A triumphalist account of the spread of Euro-Americans across the western half of North America, mostly in photographs, but with accompanying text. Discusses opportunists, politics, racial conflict, community, crime and punishment, daily life, and other aspects.
