Essays in this volume examine the significance of the frontier in American history, with emphasis on how the frontier changed throughout the nineteenth century. Selections trace how the wilderness frontier first explored by Lewis and Clark gave way to the mining frontier of the California gold rush, the cattle-driving frontier of the cowboys, and finally the farming frontier of countless pioneers who settled the Great Plains.
