Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Arkansas Territory in the early 19th century is generally seen as a brawling frontier, but Bolton draws on primary sources to show the rapid economic development, the growth of inequality, and other features of the brutal ambition of Americans. He also describes the contribution of women settlers, the establishment of the political structure, and the help received from the US government. Annotation c.
