Settling the Canadian-American West, 1890-1915: Pioneer Adaptation and Community Building : An Anthropological History

Synopsis

This "anthropological history" tells the story of homesteading and community organization in the Canadian-American West through personal reminiscences and locally written histories. John W. Bennett and Seena B. Kohl interpret those stories through the lenses of history and social science, and they present a view of settlement experience as one phase of the evolving postfrontier society and culture of western North America.
