Settling of the West

The story of how the American West came to be settled is a heroic human story. The men and women - the pioneers - chose to take many risks and leave behind their roots and venture into uncharted territory.

Not many people dare to do that. The hardships that they went through were real and backbreaking.

The victories that they won against various obstacles were truly remarkable.

I sometimes wish Indians were like that ... had some of that pioneer spirit.
