First edition. "Frontier history continually repeats itself. Into a primitive region come men to gain a livelihood; and to grapple with this wilderness they become primitive themselves. As they develop the region, they themselves develop, taking up the folkways and institutions that characterize the district whence they had come. But to the west of them is another region, still primitive; and into it go pioneers who must start at the beginning again."- -From the author's Introduction. First Edition.
