Editorial Reviews

Review

"I do not know of anyone who has brought together so much material on the popular foreboding over the frontier's demise. Wrobel uses articles and commentaries from periodicals in the 1870s and 1880s to show both an awareness of the frontier's significance to a distinctive national character and an uneasiness that this molding influence was about to end. Unlike a lot of writing in intellectual history, his style is accessible to the general reader as well as the specialist."—Elliott West, author of Growing Up with the Country: Childhood on the Far-Western Frontier.
