This is an interesting read, fast and sometimes funny. The sections about the Native American massacres are terrible. I found some of the stories contradicting previously known tales I have read about the west.

This book was fun, but too general. The author introduces a little bit of information about a lot of people/places/events. It's a wonderful introduction to the "Wild West" but if you're looking for more than Jeopardy answers to specific questions, this is not what you're looking for.

I ended up not finishing it... I felt like I already knew what I was supposed to not know :) So it was too slow.
