Histories of the American Frontier Series
The Histories of the American Frontier Series, initiated by Ray Allen Billington, has been shaping the course of western and frontier history for nearly forty years. These volumes have served both to synthesize existing historiography and to set new directions for future scholarship. The Journal of American History has called the series “an outstanding contribution to American frontier history,” and no other series comes close to matching its extraordinary importance to its field over so many years. As we look ahead to new books, the series will continue to support the best original work on frontier and western regional history and will remain a source of outstanding volumes for scholars and students alike.
