Editorial Reviews

"MacNeil s The Emergence of the American Frontier Hero 1682-1826 draws creatively on myth, imagery, and symbol in a comprehensive portrait of the frontier as a complex borderland. With innovative readings of literary, historical, and cinematic figures, MacNeil s sweeping study offers intriguing, new approaches to the field of American Studies." - Susan Imbarrato, author of Traveling Women: Narrative Visions of Early America
