Product Description:

Perhaps no era of American history carries with it as striking and influential a mythology as the Old West of the late 19th Century. In the wake of the Civil War that tore the nation asunder,' Manifest Destiny' reigned, with immigrants pushing ever onward, out through the Great Plains and the deserts and toward the Pacific. It was an era of formidable outlaws, heartbreaking displacement of Native Americans, and continual resettlement. This box set delves into that epoch with a staggering line-up of documentaries that examine the period from various angles. Contents include: THE GREAT INDIAN WARS: 1540-1890, which surveys the 350-year struggle between American Indians and European settlers; OUTLAWS & GUNFIGHTERS, which evaluates the gruesome weapons that developed in the wake of the Civil War, and examines how that conflict trained an entire generation of innocents to kill other men; TRAIL OF TEARS, a compilation of four individual documentaries on the endurance of Native American cultures despite innumerable relocations; AMERICAN HISTORY OF THE WILD WEST, a twelve-part series on some of the most famous figures to populate the western half of the United States during the late 19th Century; and NATIVE AMERICA: VOICES FROM THE LAND, which discusses the drive of Native Americans to assimilate and retain individual cultural identities despite mitigating (and in some cases, daunting) external factors. James Earl Jones narrates.
