Description
In this follow-up to The Gunfighters and The Wild West Bruce Wexler chronicles the widespread use of firearms in the American West and how they played a definitive role in the country's growth and identity—due in no small part both to the technological advances in weaponry during the Civil War and the large number of ex-soldiers who then carried these new guns into the frontier. With more than 200 captioned color and archival photos, Wexler profiles such models as the Hawken plains rifle, the Colt Paterson revolver, the Spencer Repeating carbine, the Colt Single-Action Army revolver, and the Smith & Wesson Model No. 3, as well as gun makers Samuel Colt, Horace Smith & Daniel Wesson, Oliver Winchester, Eliphalet Remington, and John Moses Browning.
