Ken Burn's The West

By the late 1880s Americans were astounded by the changes brought to the West - mining towns now cities, even the landscape changing. The Indians, defeated by the military flocked to a Paiute mystic, who offered the illusory hope the lost world of the buffalo could be brought back by a Ghost Dance. However, this hope was trampled as a new rush land in Oklahoma saw even more Indians dispossessed of their land.
