In this original work, Gibson, a professor of history at the University of Oklahoma before his death in 1987, views America's expansion in the Pacific Basin from 1784 to 1861 as part of the nation's frontier experience. He convincingly argues that the same agents were at work on this maritime frontier as on the frontier on land. Explorers, hunters and fur traders, merchants, miners, farmers, missionaries, military men, and writers added to American knowledge of the Pacific Basin, established and enlarged the American presence, drew government attention to the region, leading to the Americanization of the area. From Gibson's outline, Whitehead (history, Univ. of Alaska) completed the book's final two chapters. Recommended for academic and large public libraries.
