Summary
Nineteenth-century America was boasted as "the land of the free". And it was- if a person happened to be an Anglo-American Protestant farmer. But what of the Indian, the Mormon, the cattleman, and the logger? They were dissatisfied. Why? What made the difference in the Mountain West? Federal misperception and mismanagement. Perceiving the Mountain West to be an undeveloped Midwest, the government ignored territorial interests and needs. Here is an exploration of the arguments used for and against federal policies and an examination of the actual needs of the Mountain West. -- from Book Jacket
