Description: Historians have paid little attention to the lives and contributions of children who took part in westward expansion. In this major study of American childhood, now available again in paperback, Elliott West explores how children helped shape -- and in turn were shaped by -- the frontier experience. Frontier children's first vivid perceptions of the new country, when deepened by their work, play, and exploration, forged a stronger bond with their surroundings than that of their elders. Through diaries, journals, letters, novels, and oral and written reminiscences, West has reconstructed the lives of the children who grew to become the first truly Western generation.

"Imaginatively conceived, beautifully written, and thoroughly researched". -- Oregon Historical Quarterly

"A new perspective on family, western experience, and the causes of regional distinctiveness". -- American Historical Review

"A book of grace and wit". -- Oral History Review
