Book cover of Blood and Thunder: An Epic of the American West by Hampton Sidesby Hampton Sides

NATIONAL BESTSELLER   From the author of Ghost Soldiers comes a magnificent history of the American conquest of the West—”a story full of authority and color, truth and prophecy” (The New York Times Book Review).

In the summer of 1846, the Army of the West marched through Santa Fe, en route to invade and occupy the Western territories claimed by Mexico. Fueled by the new ideology of “Manifest Destiny,” this land grab would lead to a decades-long battle between the United States and the Navajos, the fiercely resistant rulers of a huge swath of mountainous desert wilderness.
