This remarkable, innovative book portrays the American experience in microcosm. Gerald McFarland tells the story of U.S. westward expansion through the stories of his own ancestors-from the arrival in Massachusetts in 1630, through successive generations that moved west, at length reaching the West Coast in 1900. "The real American history."-Choice. "The people in this history are not famous, but, through the author's meticulous research, every one of them comes to life."-New Yorker.
Gerald McFarland is a professor of history at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. He has also written The "Counterfeit" Man: The True Story of the Boorn-Colvin Murder Case and Mugwumps, Morals and Politics, 1884-1920.
