The American Frontier Pioneers, Settlers, and Cowboys 1800-1899 by William C. Davis
In The American Frontier, historian William C. Davis masterfully chronicles the history of the territory beyond the Mississippi, with particular attention to exploration, expansion, conflict, and settlement. In 1804 the frontier of the "West of opportunity" was St. Louis, from which Lewis and Clark set out on their journey of discovery. Their first bold steps provided the key to the greatest adventure of them all, inspiring the emergence of a nation in a momentous century of migration and settlement.
The American Frontier portrays lives through artifacts from the collections of the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, Cody, Wyoming. Gathered and displayed for the first time in more than thirty outstanding color spreads, they provide a timely, memorable evocation of frontier American, showing both the legend and the reality of the West as it has never been seen before.
