Building upon decades of patient and detailed scholarship, it is now possible to attempt the beginning of a new and more general assessment of the role of exploration in the development of the American West, and also, using the American West as a very extensive case study, to inquire more closely into the nature of exploration itself and its consequences as an activity for civilization in general. Such in broadest outlines are the objectives of this book. - Introduction.
