The men and women who helped to tame the west were larger-than-life Americans-rebels, pioneers, and icons of the frontier culture. Both heroes and villains, they captured the imagination of a nation and inspired a stream of novels, television shows, and big-screen dramas. Step into the past with America's Wild West, a new special that captures some of the best moments from American Experience's films of the Wild West: Annie Oakley, Billy the Kid, Buffalo Bill, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Custer's Last Stand, Jesse James, Kit Carson and Wyatt Earp.
