Summary
"The American frontier, a potent symbol since Europeans first stepped ashore on North America, serves as the touchstone for Kerwin Klein's remarkable analysis of the narrating of history. Klein explores the traditions through which historians, philosophers, anthropologists, and literary critics have understood America's origin story and the way those understandings have shaped and been shaped by changing conceptions of History."--BOOK JACKET
