Paleo-Indians, Spanish conquistadors and settlers, gold rushers, and aspiring movie stars and computer moguls are among the people Nugent (history, U. of Notre Dame) profiles in his historic sweep of the US west. He explains such matters as how California became the most urban, most populous, and most ethnically diverse state in the country; why African Americans in the early 1900s thought Oakland and Denver more tolerant than San Francisco or Los Angeles; and what happened to the second generation of Mormons after the big migrations of the 1840s.
