A fine way to enjoy the history of the American West.
This is an excellent series that both entertains and informs. Based on its unprecedentedly high ratings and those of the subsequent series, Civil War Journal, A&E decided to launch the History Channel. Great efforts were made by all of the many producers involved to maintain a high standard of historical accuracy. I know this for a fact because I was the Director of Photography for both series and watched every producer work on his/her show. The historians interviewed (talking heads) were pleased with the results and appeared for free in episode after episode. Many wrote letters congratulating the producers. The only "disgusted" historians were perhaps those not invited to appear, such as Roy Rogers experts from Missouri.
