"This important new work takes what some have called 'the f-word' of American history (frontier) and returns it to polite conversation. Starting with the common-sense idea that we should try to understand what colonists meant when they called themselves 'frontier people,' Patrick Spero suggests how Pennsylvania, 'the Keystone State,' can indeed be a keystone for understanding not only early America but the 'frontier country' that followed after 1776."--James H. Merrell, author of Into the American Woods

Spero's detailed examination of Pennsylvania's colonial politics and border disputes with its neighbors shed new light on the shift in the colony's expansion policies which not only play a critical role in redefining Indian relations, but its relationship with British imperial policy as well. This book represents truly ground-breaking research on the view of self-described colonial inhabitants of the18th century Pennsylvania frontier on their own terms and often in their own words. Scholarly, but adequately accessible for those with a baseline knowledge of the period, I highly recommend it.
