Description
The migration of the American people to the West has often been associated with the quest for the American Dream. In The Western Pursuit of the American Dream, Kenneth W. Rendell, renowned dealer in Americana, draws on his extensive collection to tell the story of the West through surviving words and artifacts. Rendell's collection is both eclectic and comprehensive. His book includes examples of artwork, clothing, currency, furs, historical documents, jewerly, musical instruments, stagecoaches, weapons, and more. Accompanying the illustrations are passages from early letters, journals, books, and other documents. Rendell also provides useful information regarding the market for similar artifacts. With more than five hundred color illustrations, this volume is a notable resource on the history of the West and a testimony to one man's pursuit of an American dream.
