How the Irish Won the West

Myles Dungan

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

Tells the true story of the influence of Irish immigrants and their descendants in the making of America.

In this refreshing take on Irish-American history, broadcaster and historian Myles Dungan brilliantly describes how the exploration and exploitation of the West was vastly different from Hollywood myth. He reveals the true story of Irish immigrants and their descendants, from cannibals and prostitutes to soldiers and frontier-men, who toiled and dreamed of bigger things in America’s Wild West.

How the Irish Won the West is a wonderful and entertaining testament to the Irish men and women who helped build a new nation.

Author Myles Dungan is a broadcaster and historian. He presents The History Show on RTÉ Radio 1 and his weekly ‘On This Day’ column for Drivetime is in its second year. He has also compiled and presented a number of award-winning historical documentaries. He is the author of numerous works on Irish and American history and holds a PhD from Trinity College, Dublin.
