The farmers' frontier, 1865-1900 by Gilbert Courtland Fite( Book )

27 editions published between 1966 and 2002 in English and held by 1,185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When American farmers began their move after the Civil War, the Far West was virtually unsettled. A few thousand Americans called California their home, but between the Pacific Coast and the Missouri River, only isolated pockets of settlement in Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and other distant spots challenged nature's monopoly. When the farmers' march slowed at the end of the century, the entire West was occupied, except for the mountain and desert country that still repulsed mankind's advances. In the three decades after 1870, more land was settled and placed under cultivation by farmers than in all the prior history of the continent
Cotton fields no more : Southern agriculture, 1865-1980 by Gilbert Courtland Fite( Book )

12 editions published between 1984 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No general history of southern farming since the end of slavery has been published until now. For the first time, Gilbert C. Fite has drawn together the many threads that make up commercial agricultural development in the eleven states of the old Confederacy, to explain why agricultural change was so slow in the South, and then to show how the agents of change worked after 1933 to destroy the old and produce a new agriculture. Fite traces the decline and departure of King Cotton as the hard taskmaster of the region, and the replacement of cotton by a somewhat more democratically rewarding group
