Description
CENTENNIAL is a celebration of the stunning panorama of the West, brimming with the glory and the greatness of the American past.

This is the story of the land and its people -- of Lame Bever, the Arapaho chieftain and warrior, and his Comanche and Pawnee enemies; of Levi Zendt, fleeing with his child bride from the Pennsylvania Amish; and of the cowboy Jim Lloyd, who falls in love with the wealthy and cultured Englishwoman, Charlotte Seccombe.

It is the story of trappers, traders, homesteaders, gold seekers, ranchers, hunters -- all caught up in the dramatic events and violent conflicts that shaped the destiny of our legendary West.

display_description Written to commemorate the Bicentennial in 1976, James A. Michener's magnificent saga of the West is an enthralling celebration of the frontier. Brimming with the glory of America's past, the story of Colorado—the Centennial State—is manifested through its people: Lame Beaver, the Arapaho chieftain and warrior, and his Comanche and Pawnee enemies; Levi Zendt, fleeing with his child bride from the Amish country; the cowboy, Jim Lloyd, who falls in love with a wealthy and cultured Englishwoman, Charlotte Seccombe. In Centennial, trappers, traders, homesteaders, gold seekers, ranchers, and hunters are brought together in the dramatic conflicts that shape the destiny of the legendary West—and the entire country.
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James A. Michener's Hawaii.

Praise for Centennial
