The Wild West became a place of new beginnings and great promise for many people, especially African Americans. As slavery and civil war ravaged the East, many African Americans attempted to start anew on the frontier. This book puts a spotlight on the trials and successes of African Americans in the West, and provides short biographies of famous African American cowboys, such as Nat Love and Bose Ikart. Readers will delight in the information-rich text and corresponding visuals. Fact boxes replace myths of the Wild West with their truths, while sidebars help deepen the reader’s understanding of the topic.
