About this product
- DescriptionIt's a cinematic image as familiar as John Wayne's face: a wagon train circling as a defensive maneuver against Indian attacks. This book examines actual and fictional wagon-train battles and compares them for realism. It also describes how fledgling Hollywood portrayed the concept of westward migration, but as the evolving industry became more accurate in historical detail, how filmmakers lost sight of the big picture.
- Author BiographyHistorian Gregory F. Michno is the author of numerous books about such topics as the American West and World War II. He lives in Frederick, Colorado. Susan J. Michno has written articles on the Spirit Lake Massacre and the Box Family of Texas. She lives in Frederick, Colorado.
