Time Periods of the Old West

What part of the old west do you like most? There are at least four distinct periods of time in the old west. (All overlap and dates are very general.

 

The first people – anything before 1800

 The Mountain Men – to about 1850

Settlers and Cowboys – up to 1900

The recent west – anything after 1900

 

I am sure that we could break this down into many smaller groups but this is the way I see it. Now which is your favorite? Many people hedge and say, “all of them,” and I guess that is all right. But really do you have a favorite?
