Binding: Hardcover

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Hardcover

Description:

Hardcover. 297 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.3in. x 1.2in.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. Settling the Canadian-American West, 18901915 contains a synthesis of Canadian and U. S. settlement experiences giving, to the extent possible, equal space to both sides of the international boundary. The experiences of people in these adjacent territories were virtually identical, with emigrant populations from the same countries and socioeconomic strata. Among other aspects of the homesteading experience, the authors explore the interactive adaptation that developed in the West. Networks of mutual aid, reverently remembered by the voices found in these pages, eased the inevitable hardships. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9780803212541

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. Settling the Canadian-American West, 1890-1915 contains a synthesis of Canadian and U.S. settlement experiences giving, to the extent possible, equal space to both sides of the international boundary. The experiences of people in these adjacent territories were virtually identical, with emigrant populations from the same countries and socioeconomic strata. Among other aspects of the homesteading experience, the authors explore the "interactive adaptation" that developed in the West. Networks of mutual aid, reverently remembered by the voices found in these pages, eased the inevitable hardships. John W. Bennett is Distinguished Anthropologist in Residence in the Department of Anthropology at Washington University. Seena B. Kohl is a professor in the Department of Behavioral and Social Science at Webster University.

Review: "An extraordinary piece of scholarship. Based on three or more decades of painstaking research in the northern Great Plains, it builds on Bennett's classic Northern Plainsmen to give one of the most richly textured portraits I have ever read about the Montana-Dakota-Saskatchewan-Alberta region."--William Cronon, author of "Nature's Metropolis: Chicago and the Great West"--William Cronon
