"...Another don't miss history lesson... The West is a sweeping, thoughtful, often moving look at America's conquest of the West... wonderfully narrated by Peter Coyote." - Richard Zoglin, Time
Presented by Ken Burns and directed by Stephen Ives, this 12-hour film chronicles the epic saga of America's most vast and turbulent region, beginning before European settlement and continuing into the 20th century.
The West comes to life in this penetrating history that overturns old stereotypes, discovers new personalities, and explores the triumphs and tragedies that make The West the source of some of the most compelling stories in American History.
