How the West was Lost and Won (1845-1893).
|Over a century ago, on the sweeping plains of the West, European whites and Native Americans clashed in a deadly battle. Follow the titanic struggle from the time of the Gold Rush until after the last gasp of the Indian Wars at Wounded Knee. Acclaimed filmmakers Ric Burns and Lisa Ades follow the collision of cultures as Native Americans and whites struggled bitterly over land and values. Their respective visions of America and its future could not coexist. Thomas Jefferson thought it would take a thousand years to settle and subdue the West; it took approximately 50 years. In addition to providing a history of expansion and material conquest, The Way West explores the spiritual dimensions of the struggle for the American West.|
