The American cowboy came to the West to begin again after a bloody civil war had ended. He worked long hours in lonely cow camps and his pay was meager, but he had grit and determination. He faced constant danger; he fought Indians and rustlers and braved swollen rivers and stampedes. And, finally, when the days of the open range were over, he rode off into the sunset. But his legacy lives on.He had created a new West, a West that would endure forever in books, songs, movies, and television. In your mind´s eye, you can still see him astride his horse, silhouetted on a hill, looking resolute, wild and free.There were others, though, who wanted to claim a homestead and live forever in the West. On September 16, 1893, they had their chance. One hundred and fifty thousand men and women waited at the edges of a vasttract of government land they called the Cherokee Strip, waiting for a signal that would open 40,000 homesteads for settlement. They had come from every state and abroad. Among them were doctors and lawyers, housewives, farmers, cowboys, and drifters. But for every person who would claim a homestead, two would be disappointed. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Donnie Blanz, Joe Loesch.

On June 25, 1876, five troops of the U. S. Seventh Cavalry, under command of General George Armstrong Custer, rode into the valley of the Little Big Horn River expecting to rout the Indian encampment there. Instead they were met by the gathered strength of the Sioux and Cheyenne warriors, who did not run, but turned to battle the soldiers. White Bull charged again and again, leading a war party until the last soldier lay dead. The battle became known as Custer´s Last Stand, and Chief White Bull as the warrior who killed Custer. In 1932, White Bull told his own side of the story to Stanley Vestal. ´´All that I have told is straight and true,´´ said White Bull. His story is a matchless telling of the life of a Sioux warrior. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Taylor. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/bimo/000539de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.

Sergeant Charles Windolph was the last white survivor of the Battle of Little Big Horn when he told his story nearly 70 years later. A six-year veteran in the Seventh Cavalry, Windolph rode in the 1873 Yellowstone Expedition, and the 1874 Black Hills Expedition. He fought in Captain Benteen´s troops on the fatal Sunday, and vividly recalls the battle that wiped out Custer´s command. Equally vivid is the evidence marshaled by historians Frazier and Robert Hunt. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack Sondericker.
