5.0 out of 5 stars What I Never Learned 10 Jun 2013
By Jacob Norman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In 8th grade, I learned about the wild west and I loved learning about it. When I found out how good this book was from other people, I had to read it. The book taught me so much more about the wild west than my 8th grade textbook did. I loved the book and the illustrations. I gave the book such a good review because I loved reading it and I had a wild west adventure of my own imaging how life would be if I lived in that time period. This book is a best seller in my mind and history teachers everywhere would be happy to have this book added to the textbooks they are teaching from. Once again, I have to say I loved this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars CONDENSED VERSION OF AMERICA'S WESTWARD EXPANSION YOU WILL LOVE 13 Jun 2013
By V. L. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
WOW! I LOVED this wacky and wonderful book of American history detailing the westward expansion that is so engrossing you won't put it down - one surprise after another as you learn how the western states were acquired (Sheinkin's maps are so original and helpful), how, when, and why the settlers traveled to the Pacific coast despite the Rocky Mountain and Sierra Nevada ranges, wide rivers, Indian territories, desert heat, deep snow and so on. You never really learned about the plight of the native Americans either, in quite this way in your history classes!

There are source notes, quotation notes and an index in back of the book - the book is a marvel and I enjoyed it from cover to cover. You will also. Share it with your kids and friends. This book is about America, especially after the Civil War - the good, the bad, and the ugly. Next time you think of a native American Indian or a buffalo, or take a train or drive a car out west - you'll remember this book for sure. Yes there are movies, TV series (Gunsmoke comes to mind), memoirs (think "Vanishing Arizona", but "Which Way to the Wild West" is an original retelling of our American story you don't want to miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book 23 Jan 2010
By Anonymous - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love all of Steve Shenkin's books, and now I own all three. Instead of focusing on a war, this time Mr. Shenkin wrote a book about the wild west. It is great, and follows his funny and intriguing style. His ability to find wacky stories is very much appreciated, and it makes his books many times more interesting than if they had simple, standard, stories. All in all, this book was great and I loved it, as I have with all of Mr. Shenkin's books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Knew American History was so Cool? 6 April 2010
By N. Verno - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Sheinkin does it again! I am commenting on Which Way because it is my favorite of his (thus far) three US history books. I reluctantly picked up this one because I had little interest in the American Westward Expansion but loved King George and Two Miserable Presidents (his two previous titles). Sheinkin's is an expert engager, and I quickly converted to a Wild West enthusiast. Sadly, I reached adulthood (with a BA and MS!!!) without a clear understanding of hows and whys of US history (though, you bet could draw a heck of a time-line). Thankfully, Steve Sheinkin is here to illuminate American History for (us and) our children. Let's hope that he continues covering US history right up until the present!
