Dale Van Every, The American Frontier 1st ed., 4 Vols
A Panoramic Narrative of the Drive to the Pacific
Dale Van Every’s The American Frontier, 1st ed, in four volumes. Dale Van Every, Oscar-nominated screenwriter of Captains Courageous, produced this wonderful, panoramic narrative of the pioneer drive to the Pacific.
The works were enormously popular when they came out in the early 1960’s, and famed historians Henry Steele Commager and Allan Nevins provided Forewords to the last two volumes.
“A Fascinating narrative of backwoods life, Indian warfare, land speculation, and Spanish, British and French intrigues”
— John R. Alden, N. Y. Times.
Uncommon in dust jackets! Light sunning on A Company of Heroes & The Final Challenge; very light wear at extremities of just jackets; else very good.
