FROM THE PUBLISHER
 

ANNOTATION
Drawing on letters, diaries, and other personal writings, as well as on
official documents, this richly illustrated, meticulously documented look at
a little-known aspect of African-American history captures the unique
experiences of these pioneers. Features a new Introduction by the author. 250
photos. 55 line drawings.

The American West: no period in our history has defined and shaped us more as
a nation. Unique to the U.S., the Old West exerts a power on the American
imagination that can still be seen in almost every aspect of our culture.
Sadly, as is the case with most other periods, historic acknowledgment of the
African American contribution to the West is either totally nonexistent or
nowhere near complete.

In The Black West, historian William Loren Katz corrects the record in words
and pictures, showing that, from the journeys of Lewis and Clark to the
charge at San Juan Hill, African American men and women exerted an influence
beyond their numbers in the discovery and definition of the American West.
