History Detectives

The History Detectives investigate four stories from the American West. Did a biography of legendary frontiersman Kit Carson once belong to members of his family? Then, from the rodeo to Hollywood, a saddle tells the story of Yakima Canutt, who made life safer for movie stunt artists. What is the meaning behind the mysterious inscription on sheet music of the popular western song 'Tumbling Tumbleweeds'? Finally, did a pivotal character in the Modoc Indian wars weave this basket?
