The history of the American West is full of intriguing life stories, and the fifteen essays in this collection weave a selection of those lives together to focus on the main currents in the region's history.

In this richly insightful survey that represents the culmination of decades of research, a leading western specialist argues that the unique history of the American West did not end in the year 1900, as is commonly assumed, but was shaped as much―if not more―by events and innovations in the twentieth century. Earl Pomeroy gathers copious information on economic, political, social, intellectual, and business issues, thoughtfully evaluates it, and draws a new and more nuanced portrait of the West than has ever been depicted before.

Pomeroy mines extensive published and unpublished sources to show how the post–1900 West charted a path that was influenced by, but separate from, the rest of the country and the world. He deals not only with the West’s transition from an agricultural to an urban region but also with the important contributions of minority racial and ethnic groups and women in that transformation. Pomeroy describes a modern West―increasingly urban, transnational, and multicultural―that has overcome much of the isolation that challenged it at an earlier time.

First and foremost, I must say that I am disappointed with the definition of the "Far West". I never expected a historian to define the "Far West" as a group of 18 states as far east as Kansas, Nebraska, and the Dakotas. I really thought that this book would be exclusively about California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Colorado, Alaska, Hawaii & New Mexico, but alas - that was not the case. Pomeroy even excludes Texas as a "southern" state moreso than representative of the West.

Pomeroy relies heavily on statistics, especially in the early stages of the work, to further his thesis that the West developed as much as the East, just in a different fashion.

Pomeroy uses the midwestern states of Kansas, Nebraska, and the Dakotas in his early analysis that the West formed based on the expanses of land and the new uses of that land by immigrants. He migrates on to focus largely on California in much of the rest of the work, since it seems to be largely indicative of the stereotypical definition of the American West. Pomeroy's analysis is always insightful and fascinating to read.

I enjoyed the book, but I believe that it would have been a better depiction of the entire Far West had it focused only on several states - not a group of 18.
