Shaped by the Westis a primary-source reader that rewrites the history of the United States through a western lens.

The sources included in this volume reflect the important role of the West in national narratives of American history, from the pre-Columbian era to 1877. William Deverell and Anne F.

He has published numerous books on the history of California and the American West, includingWhitewashed Adobe,A Companion to Los Angeles, andA Companion to California History.Anne ...
