Quotes from People Who Have Purchased These Books:
"Not just for children! Bought two for a Mort Kunstler lover I know!"

"Just right for grade school aged kids. Very good illustrations."

"For a book that is only 46 pages, there is a lot covered in a short amount of space...The paintings on each page are breathtaking. There is life and action in each picture...I would buy it for the paintings alone, but the text is interesting and readable as well."

"For anyone interested in the American West, this is a good book. The beautiful, detailed paintings nicely complement the well-written text, giving a detailed overview of the history of the West from 1804 to 1890. Any preteen who enjoys nonfiction will enjoy this book."

Take a visual journey through the events of the Wild West with the art of Mort Künstler

Künstler's paintings bring history to life with striking portrayals of the events of America's Wild West, starting in 1803, when Lewis and Clark made their first expeditions, to 1890, when the American frontier was declared "vanished." The epic artworks faithfully capture the incredible landscapes, explorations, and battles of this important period, and ask children to look again and again for special details, such as feathers in an Native American chief's headdress to the type of horse a cattleman rides. Together with text by award-winning historian James I. Robertson, Jr., these brilliantly explicit paintings engage a young reader's attention and introduce him or her to American history through the visual arts.

Lauded by both historians and curators, Künstler presents beautifully rendered works chronicling America's expansion to the West in a historically acurrate and appealing way – transporting the reader right into each scene.

No other living historical artist is as celebrated as Künstler, and his work continues to attract history lovers of all ages.
