H. W. Brands - Dreams of El Dorado: A History of the American West

Upcoming Event
Friday, November 1, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

A two-time Pulitzer finalist, Brands is the author of bestselling narrative histories including Heirs of the FoundersAmerican Colossus, and The Age of Gold. In his new book, he combines vivid storytelling with dramatic profiles to trace the arc of the settling of the American West. One of the defining factors of the country, westward expansion left a mixed legacy, and in recounting events such as the Oklahoma land rush and the Texas Revolution, Brands is as attuned to the genuine achievements of the many settlers, cowboys, missionaries, and adventurers involved as he is to their acts of violence against indigenous peoples and each other.
