It’s April 22, 1889, and fifty thousand boomers line up on the border of the Unassigned Territory, ready to stake their claims on available land. They’re waiting for high noon and that starting shot. The Great Land Run tells the stories of what brought a few of these boomers to the border hoping for a better life. Detailed illustrations support this exciting tale of the Wild West.
