Westward expansion : a history of the American frontier by Ray Allen Billington( Book )
17 editions published between 1982 and 2009 in English and held by 785 libraries worldwide
Although the text sets out the remarkable story of the American frontier, which became, almost from the beginning, an archetypal narrative of the new American nation's successful expansion, the authors do not forget the social, environmental, and human cost of national expansion. While most Americans take pride in the nation's frontier heritage and its associated myths, they also share that history with others--especially with people of color--in whose collective memories the story of the American west is rendered both dark and painful. Westward Expansion encourages an understanding of American "westering" that is mindful of the racism and excessive nationalism that frequently marred the Western frontier experience. At the same time, the authors understand a sense of optimism, a profound faith in individuals' own abilities, the willingness to innovate, and an abiding trust in democracy to be the transcendent values of the frontier experience, traits that continue to influence the character of America's people long after the close of the western frontier

Westering women and the frontier experience, 1800-1915 by Sandra L Myres( Book )
1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 5 libraries worldwide
In this book frontier women gain a voice they never had. Professor Myers uses extensive new material by and about women--letters, journals, and reminiscences from over 400 collections--to study the impact of the frontier on women's lives and the role of women in the West. She offers a major reinterpretation of the experience of pioneer women, including that of Indian, Mexican, French, black, and Anglo-American women. Her account re-creates in detail the frontier experience of all these women, beginning with their physical and intellectual responses to the trek West, and concluding with their struggle for political suffrage and economic opportunity. Women moved from civilization to the frontier encumbered by more than baggage. they also had to overcome literary and social stereotypes depicting them as "sun-bonnet saints," "gentle tamers," or "silent partners." The real opinions and true feelings of frontier women in the West are carefully put forth in this book. We learn their views on wilderness, Indians, race, and religion as well as how they reacted to the daily challenges of keeping house, raising a family, and gaining a measure of equality. Sandra Myers perceptively reinterprets here the lives and impressions of a variety of frontier women, and colorful characters like Calamity Jane and Poker Alice. Her impeccable attention to historical detail combined with the sheer fascination of the materials and subject make a book that will appeal to many readers
