A magnificent history of the American conquest of the West a story full of authority and color truth and prophecy The New York Times Book Review In the summer of 1846 the Army of the West marched through Santa Fe en route to invade and occupy the Western territories claimed by Mexico Fueled by the new ideology of Manifest Destiny this land grab would lead to a decades long battle between the United States and the Navajos the fiercely resistant rulers of a huge swath of mountainous desert wilderness At the center of this sweeping tale is Kit Carson the trapper scout and soldier whose adventures made him a legend Sides shows us how this illiterate mountain man understood and respected the Western tribes better than any other American yet willingly followed orders that would ultimately devastate the Navajo nation Rich in detail and spanning more than three decades this is an essential addition to our understanding of how the West was really won
