"Romancing the West takes audiences on a 240-year journey through the American West, telling the epic story of Western Expansionism with rare historic photographs, film and original music.

"The two-hour show spans decades, from the Native tribes and the free trappers to the Spanish Missions and Gold Rush, the Indian Wars, through the Industrial Revolution and the Great Depression, World Wars and The Sixties to the present day," continues the site.
