Love The Old West
Nila M. Stillion | Canton, Ohio | 03/24/2008

"I love this series by the History Channel. The scenery photos are beautiful. The commentary taken from the diaries of cowboys and newspapers are accurate accounts. The History Channel created a small glimpse into the history of the old west into an hour long show. They could not tell all in only hour long glimpses into history. If you want to gain an insight into the old west this is a great way to begin your journey. If you want to become an historian on the old west then you can read many books on the subject. But as a fan of the old west I love watching this series and hope to find more of this series available on DVD."
Very well presented view of the Old west

"This History Channel set of DVDs uses archival stills & some old movie clips to present a good look at the "real" West. Intelligent commentary, warts & all add to the enjoyment. The Chapters give really good in depth looks at the various Characters & the disc on the Guns of the West is well done except it glosses over the Remington Revolvers which were very well respected by their owners & were probably superior to the Colt Peacemaker."
The elementary west

"Sorry, but this series just doesn't have the depth to provide much more than a superficial look at the subject matter. If you are a wild west buff or a western history fan you won't pick up much here that you hadn't already seen or heard. I suppose it might be a case of trying to cram too much into spots that were made for t.v., but I just didn't see much here to recommend this series."

"Yep, this was a real thrill when it was on the air...just like the way they told the tales. No real fluff and lots of solid facts told in an entertaining way. History buffs will get a kick out of and young kids learning about the Wild West might find it a good source to fall back on when Hollywood is done with it's revisionist west...."
