Summary
  • " ... a compelling documentary of the epic struggle for the American West. Witness the tragic plight of five Native American nations: the Navajo, Nez Perce, Apache, Cheyenne and Lakota. They didn't just fight for territory--the fought to preserve a proud way of life. With poignant recollections from the Indians' descendants, spectacular videography, rare historical documents, and archival photographs, "How the West was lost" will give you a thought-provoking new perspective on this haunting era of American history"--Containers
  • "In "A clash of cultures", witness the defeat and demoralization of the Navajo. Visit Monument Valley, where the Navajo played "hide and seek" with the enemy. Sense the desperation of "The Long Walk" as Navajo descendants recount their ancestors' 300-mile forced march. Then relive the Nez Perce tribe's gallant flight for freedom in "I will fight no more forever." Roam the Pacific Northwest with Chief Joseph and his warriors as they lead the U.S. Army on a tumultuous 1,500 mile chase toward the Canadian border."--V. 1 container
  • "In "A good day to die", see how the Lakotas, led by Crazy Horse, Red Cloud and Sitting Bull, rebelled against the gold seekers pushing through their land. Learn how their great victory over Custer in the Battle at Little Bighorn foretold their eventual defeat. Then see how the Lakotas and the Northern Cheyenne valiantly resisted efforts to force them to reservations in "Kill the Indian, save the man." Learn how hysteria among whites over the Lakota's ritualistic ghost dance exploded into the final devastating clash at Wounded Knee"--V. 3 container
  • "Join the fierce and elusive Apaches in "Always the enemy." Hear descendants of warriors who fought with Cochise and Geronimo recount the heroic struggle of the Apache nation which, though never conquered, endured 27 years as prisoners of war. In "The only good Indian is a dead Indian", learn how unprovoked massacres of peaceful Cheyennes at Sand Creek and Washita turned them into a vengeful tribe. See how the white man's slaughter of the buffalo herds destroyed the Cheyennes' way of life"--V. 2 container
