Pub. Date:
In 1890, the U.S. Census Department declared that there was no longer an American frontier. It had taken over 280 years, but the pioneers had persevered through broken bones, gunshot wounds, disease, and malnutrition. A lot of living had taken place, but so had a lot of dying. In this new twist on American frontier life Elizabeth Van Steenwyk shows us how the pioneers who settled this vast land managed to survive.
