Originally published over 100 years ago, The Making of the Great West is Samuel Adams Drake's incredible description of the history of settling the land west of the Mississippi. Although designed for young people, Drake also makes this story attractive to adults who are looking for a compact, intelligent view of the history of the making of the great west. Broken down into three sections, each has it's own descriptive notes, maps, plans and pictorial illustrations.
