The Great American West tells the story of the Settlement of the United States' western frontier. Using the stories and words (from diaries and letters) of real life people, this film shows not only the astonishingly beautiful territory, but also the true and often heart-wrenching stories of those who risked everything to explore and settle it. This film chronicles the major events that contributed to the settlement of the western frontier beginning with the Louisiana purchase and ending in 1890 when the U.S. Census Bureau declared that there was no more frontier; it had been settled.
