Abstract:

"The history of Missouri is rich and diverse. The state formed at the crossroads of America in the "Heart of the Nation." It has played a pivotal role in much of the nation's history, particularly in the development of the American West. The writers have endeavored to present the story of Missouri and its people in a clear and concise manner. From colonization to the present, the history of the state has been a story of Missourians and their attempts to relate to their environment and changing circumstances. The writers hope that they have captured herein the full impact of the events that have made Missouri into the state it is today."--Provided by publisher.
