Summary:
Step into the past with AMERICAN EXPERIENCE, and walk beside the legendary heroes and villains whose lives and exploits took center stage in the invention of the mythic Wild West.

Characters include
Annie Oakley - Described as "the greatest woman rifle shot the world has ever produced," Annie Oakley thrilled audiences with her shooting, but this uniquely American icon embodied many of the paradoxes of the nation. (Closed Captioned; Rating: TV-G)

Buffalo Bill - Part circus, part history, "Buffalo Bill's Wild West" toured for three decades, across the United States and Europe, and William "Buffalo Bill" Cody's legendary exploits helped create the myth of the American West--one that endures today. (Closed Captioned)

Geronimo and the Apache Resistance - It was said that Geronimo--one of the most famous and misunderstood Indian warriors in history--could see into the future, walk without footprints, and even hold off the dawn. This film seeks to separate myth from reality. (Closed Captioned)

Jesse James - The story of Jesse James remains one of America's most cherished--and fictional-- myths. Less heroic than brutal, James lived a life steeped in violence and bloodshed, and met his end like so many of his victims: unarmed, and shot in the back. (Closed Captioned; Rating: TV-PG)

Kit Carson - His exploits on the American frontier inspired dozens of dime novels, but these wildly popular books belie his tragedy. When the West was a mystery to most Americans, Carson mastered it, ultimately helping to spur a migration that would change the West forever--destroying the life he loved. (Closed Captioned)

Wyatt Earp - He is a legend in the American West, but how did the young gambler who spent his days in saloons and brothels use a shootout at the O.K. Corral to become the folk hero we know today? (Closed Captioned)
