Editorial Reviews

Review

"Move over Henry Nash Smith, Roderick Nash, and Richard Slotkin. This stunning volume immediately vaults Michael Johnson to the forefront of authorities on the Wilderness West. A brilliant and profound study." Richard W. Etulain, author of Beyond the Missouri: The Story of the American West "Provides us all with a new and insightful way of looking forward that places him in the rarified company of Frederick Jackson Turner, Henry Nash Smith, and Patricia Nelson Limerick in providing a fresh western synthesis." Paul A. Hutton, author of Phil Sheridan and His Army "An astonishing book - an epic, often jaw-dropping survey of our centuries-long love affair with the untamed West." Michael Steiner, coeditor of Many Wests: Place, Culture, and Regional Identity"
