Review: What They Didn't Teach You About the Wild West

User Review  - Susan - Goodreads

This book was fun, but too general. The author introduces a little bit of information about a lot of people/places/events. It's a wonderful introduction to the "Wild West" but if you're looking for more than Jeopardy answers to specific questions, this is not what you're looking for. Read full review
