Beyond the Missouri : the story of the American West by Richard W Etulain( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 672 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new historical overview tells the dramatic story of the American West from its prehistory to the present. A narrative history, it covers the region from the North Dakota-to-Texas states to the Pacific Coast. This West has always been home to richly diverse cultural groups, including today's growing numbers of Indian, Hispanic, Asian and African Americans. Other distinctions have marked the western past: first, the differences among prehistoric peoples and among hundreds of Indian tribes at first white contact; next, the varied western subcultures that emerged in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries; third the social, cultural, and political complexities of the West in the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. In Beyond the Missouri, Richard Etulain provides a fresh, balanced narrative of this geographically and culturally vast area and emphasizes two themes: change and complexity. His perspective is neither the too-optimistic, homogenized position of the Turnerian school of historians nor the less optimistic, conflicted approach of the revisionist western historians. Etulain begins his study with a discussion of western landscapes and Native inhabitants. He next examines the Spanish Southwest, colonial rivalries, mountain men, missionaries, and the Oregon Trail. Then Etulain looks at Mormons, miners, western communities, ranching and farming, and transportation networks. He treats western frontier social patterns and cultures and contributes several chapters on the modern West, including the pre-World War II and the Cold War Wests. Etulain concludes with today's continuing search for an American West. Each of the fifteen chapters contains a helpful list of suggested readings. - Publisher

The American Far West in the twentieth century by Earl S Pomeroy( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this survey that represents the culmination of decades of research, a leading western specialist argues that the unique history of the American West did not end in the year 1900, as is commonly assumed, but was shaped as much - if not more - by events and innovations in the twentieth century. Earl Pomeroy gathers copious information on economic, political, social, intellectual, and business issues, thoughtfully evaluates it, and draws a new and more nuanced portrait of the West than has ever been depicted before."

Religion in modern New Mexico( Book )

6 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The religious experiences of modern New Mexico are diverse: they range from Penitente ceremonies to "televangelists," from oriental mysticism to crystal shops, and from sacred mountains to a mega-church that seats 7,000. Taken together, these essays form an interfaith conversation about how the different religious traditions have confronted modernity and materialism. The activities of religious groups in New Mexico are also compared to national trends in such basic matters as church growth, concern for social justice, and teaching personal morality

Richard Etulain refutes the argument that Pacific Northwest residents were mere "spectators of disunion," revealing instead that men and women of the Oregon Country were personally and emotionally involved in the controversial ideas and events that inflamed the United States during that fractious era
