In the year 1898 the United States finished the work begun over a century before by the backwoodsman, and drove the Spaniard outright from the western world. This four-volume edition thoroughly explains the historical process of the conquest of the American West. On more than 1000 pages, former president Theodore Roosevelt described how the Americans fought Indian tribes, British, French, and Spanish troops, and how the United States became the sole masters of the West.
