Editorial Reviews

"Backman weaves religious and intellectual themes into the political and social history of the Greater West, creating a narrative that is thorough while still being readable. The book lays out the framework for Western history, leaving the instructor room to expand on the themes and areas ofhis or her choice, and its engaging voice is sure to keep students awake!" --Katherine Jenkins, Trident Technical College
