Encyclopedia of Immigration and Migration in the American West
The American West, a great and varied landmass, became home to successive waves of immigrants who, over ten thousand years, shaped it and were shaped by it. Questions of the relationship of the nation to its new arrivals have been posed and answered more than in any other places. The editors begin in these volumes to document the past and raise questions for the next generation of readers interested in the topic of the American West.The two volumes examine the settling of the West and include coverage of movements of American Indians, African Americans, and the often-forgotten role of women in the West's development.
