Summary:
Conflict on the Michigan Frontier touches on one of the oldest debates in American history: whether westerners created new cultures or simply transpalanted those in which they had been raised. Despite the focus on Michigan, Schwartz's study sheds important new light on how settlers transplanted eastern culture not just to the Midwest, but to the entire American frontier.
