Introduction: dreams and homelands -- A new world begins -- Contest of cultures -- The struggle of empires -- The land and its markers -- Finding purchase -- War and destiny -- Machine -- A search for community -- The urban frontier -- New frontiers -- As the west goes ... -- "It ain't where you're from, it's where you're at."
The newly revised second edition of this concise, engaging, and unorthodox history of America's West has been updated to incorporate new research, including recent scholarship on Native American lives and cultures. An ideal text for course work, it presents the West as both frontier and region, examining the clashing of different cultures and ethnic groups that occurred in the western territories from the first Columbian contacts between Native Americans and Europeans up to the end of the twentieth century.
