THOMAS A. PERMAR. Navigating the American West: A History. The Western Sea Press. Paperback, Kindle, 304 pages, $15.99, $5.99, Amazon.com.

This history of movement across the American West brings three centuries of travel to life. It shows how four different cultures, in four different areas, migrated across this harsh and beautiful land: the native travelers on foot, Spanish conquistadors on horseback, Frenchmen by canoe, and American settlers by wagon. In this history, the “who,” “where,” and “when” take a back seat to the fascinating “how.”
