From Davy Crockett, Wild Bill Hickok, and Calamity Jane to Paul Bunyan, Pecos Bill, and Frank and Jesse James, here are more than 130 colorful stories of the pioneers, cowboys, outlaws, gamblers, prospectors, and lawmen who settled the wild west, creating a uniquely American hero and an enduringly fascinating folk mythology. In this wonderfully boisterous treasury of tall tales, everyone and everything is larger than life and bragging is elevated into an art form. Many of these stories are of real people and real events; more than a few, however, grew taller and funnier as they made their rounds from wagon train to campfire to rodeo to miners' quarters. But even if it is far from established that Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett were able to kill three men with one bullet or subdue ferocious grizzly bears with their fists, they come vividly to life here as beloved characters who have become part of the fabric of the American imagination.

For several hundred years, the West had been the land of dreams, an extraordinary region of hope, expansion and opportunity where European countries—and then the young USA itself—sent their finest explorers to plant seeds in a seemingly untapped, open landscape. This spirit captured the popular imagination in the Wild West, those raucous 30 years between the end of the Civil War and the beginning of a new century. Within these pages, readers will explore true tales of rebels and heroes such as General George Custer, Buffalo Bill, Billy the Kid, Jesse James, Annie Oakley, and Sitting Bull, among others. The Wild West was the American Dream on steroids. It was an age of gunfights and gold rushes, cowboys and Comanches, with the likes of Buffalo Bill, Jesse James and Billy the Kid making their names. It forged extraordinary legends and even bigger lies, with everything fueled by dime novels written back East that encouraged folks to grab their share of a promise that was difficult for this hard land to keep. This book looks at all these mythical characters, the start of the railroad across the nation, the cost it all dealt to the Native Americans whose land was lost, and the way Hollywood still keeps the dream alive. As historian Richard White says, “People could go west and no matter their failures elsewhere, they had an opportunity to remake themselves. It’s a symbol for a kind of individualism that actually doesn’t exist in the West, but mythically it does.”

Century XVII. Mountain range of the Pyrenees, Iberian peninsula. A peasant from Cerdaña dies in strange circumstances. Suspecting the supernatural and evil character of the event, a priest is sent to investigate the incident. But there is more ancient and dangerous secret hidden in the heart of some cursed mountains, remembered by the few survivors of a time in which the fog was able to cover too discouraging truths... Now that veil has been broken and the threat is released. If nobody restrains it, the chaos will explode. The night is falling in which the fables that fired imagination of the little ones will turn into reality to frighten the most skeptic men... Who would be able to maintain the sanity when the firm pillars that sustain the reality, collapse? Magic, witchcraft and ancestral secrets will shake the orthodoxy of Christianity. An adventure that will take us back to the depths of the Pyrenees, to a frontier land, where the impossible seems more real than the common sense longs for. Would you be one of those who accepts the challenge, who pursues the most uncomfortable and archaic mysteries? Every tree, hill, lake, and cave belongs to two worlds; one of them we ignore. Its exiled inhabitants have fired the fantasy of popular folklore... until now. Could you reveal its presence? If you delve into their domains, you could get to know them. But you'll have to pay a price. In front, the old paths that lead us toward them are outlined and they are waiting for you. Do you have enough courage, or the necessary madness, to travel across them?

Bret Maverick (James Garner) - and later his younger brother Bart (Jack Kelly), cousin Beau (Roger Moore), and younger brother Brent (Robert Colbert) - didn't behave the way we've come to expect from our cowboy heroes. Bret Maverick, the gentle grifter who made a living playing cards and who preferred thinking rather than shooting his way out of trouble, was no one's idea of a traditional Western hero. On Sunday evening millions of people tuned in to watch the fresh, hip show that became the Western among Westerns, and a bona fide television legend that burned itself indelibly in the hearts and minds of its vast television audience. Like most legends, Maverick's history is based as much on myth as on fact. Maverick: Legend of the West examines the myths and the realties, what made the show work during its first two seasons and how backstage struggles drove away the two key components behind the show's success - creator/producer Roy Huggins and star James Garner. Ed Robertson explores the history of this unconventional Western with behind-the-scenes anecdotes and recollections from many of the show's key participants - it's filled with as many plot twists as any given episode of the series.

"All of history is mystery," Dale L. Walker says, and he proves his point in this lively, humorous--and rational--approach to the West's greatest puzzles. Did Davy Crockett, for example, go down swinging Ol' Betsy, defending the ramparts of the Alamo--or was he captured? Who is buried in Jesse James's grave? Was the man Pat Garrett shot that night really Billy the Kid? How did Black Bart, "the gentleman bandit," disappear? Did Sacajawea, the famous "Bird Woman" who scouted for Lewis and Clark, die twice? The possibilities unfold as Walker brings together little-known facts and the elusive connections that shed light on the biggest enigmas of the American West.
