Frontier America is an absorbing account of the westward movement, a subject of perennial interest to Americans. The reader will find it more than a history; it paints a lively true-to-life picture of what it meant to explore, to pacify, and to establish institutions in an untamed area between two oceans, from the middle of the eighteenth century to the 1890's. Professor Clark has written history, but it is a history abounding with colorful characters and teeming with the life of the people who made history. Here is a rich tapestry of those social, economic, political and diplomatic events which constitute the formative years of the United States.Library of Congress Catalog Card Number: 69-11124
