Contents: "From the time when the first permanent settlement was established in Kentucky and 1850, when the frontier closed, ambitious and adventurous men and women pioneered a new society in the region west of the Appalachian Mountains. This book tells that dramatic story, focusing on the people who became pioneers, the societies they built, and the new institutions they constructed to deal with the wilderness. To establish categories of description and analysis, [the author] divides the book into major time periods --
the first generation, the widening frontier, the first and second great migrations, and the enduring frontiers --
presenting case studies that concentrate on the county, the town, the community and the family" --
