"Explores the building of the Pacific railroad. Stretching from Omaha to Sacramento, this incredible feat of engineering and hubris utterly transformed the lands it connected -- previously remote prairies, suddenly there for the taking, attracted peasant farmers who began to plant wheat; cattle ranchers transported their vast herds to markets in the east; swaggering buffalo hunters pillaged native lands; Abilene, Wichita, and Dodge became boom towns. Furthermore, thanks to the increased pace of commerce and the easy accessibility between coasts, the United States became a real contender for world power. Specific topics in this volume include: the politics of funding and commissioning the railroad project, the recruitment of Chinese labor and the appalling death toll, Charles Goodnigh [...]

Ghost Dance

Loading...
By the late 1880s, Americans were astounded by the changes they had brought to the West. Defeated militarily, Native Americans throughout the region flocked to the call of a Paiute mystic, who offered the hope that the lost world of the buffalo could be brought back by a Ghost Dance. But its promises would be trampled at Wounded Knee. In place of the great Native American cultures that once dominated the Plains was a new culture, epitomized by the Oklahoma Land Rush, in which 100,000 eager settlers lined up for a mad dash to stake out a farm and a future.
