      Black Frontiers chronicles the life and times of black men and women who settled the West from to the early s. In this striking book, you'll meet many of these brave individuals face-to-face, through rare vintage photographs and a fascinating account of their real-life history.   After seeing the film The Revenant and reading the book it prompted me to look for a factual book about the History of frontiers men in the USA. The product description suggested that this was a well researched factual account of those time. It was misleading. The book is a factual novel telling a story as if it were by a third person narrative/5().
