The author of the bestselling Ghost Soldiers returns with a thrilling chronicle of how the West was really won. Between 1846, when President James K.

How this was accomplished is an epic tale of both shame and glory. "Blood and thunder" tells the story of how "Manifest Destiny" was forcibly carried out.
