The American frontier includes the geography, history, folklore, and cultural expression of life in the forward wave of American expansion that began with English colonial settlements in the early 17th century and ended with the admission of the last remaining western territories as states in 1959. This era of massive migration and settlement was particularly encouraged by President Thomas Jefferson following the Louisiana Purchase, giving rise to the expansionist philosophy known as "Manifest Destiny".

The Significance of the Frontier in American History" is a seminal essay by the American historian Frederick Jackson Turner which advanced the Frontier Thesis of American history. It was presented to a special meeting of the American Historical Association at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, Illinois in 1893, and published later that year first in Proceedings of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin, then in the Annual Report of the American Historical Association.

Europeans came to the West from all directions via both coasts and Mexico.

The historian Frederick Jackson Turner noted that, especially in the United States, the term referred to that belt of territory sparsely occupied by Indian traders, hunters, miners, ranchmen, backwoodsmen and adventurers of all sorts which formed the temporary boundary of an expanding society at the edge of substantially free lands. Some have used the terms frontier and West interchangeably as referring to an area having geographical location only in relation to a particular period of time and changing constantly as population had advanced.

THE FRONTIER IN AMERICAN HISTORY. BY. FREDERICK JACKSON TURNER. NEW YORKHENRY HOLT AND COMPANY1921. TO CAROLINE M. TURNER MY WIFE. Chapter I: The Significance of the Frontier in American History.

The American frontier is sharply distinguished from the European frontier-a fortified boundary line running through dense populations. The most significant thing about the American frontier is, that it lies at the hither edge of free land. In the census reports it is treated as the margin of that settlement which has a density of two or more to the square mile. The term is an elastic one, and for our purposes does not need sharp definition. We shall consider the whole frontier belt, including the Indian country and the outer margin of the settled area of the census reports.

The American Frontier comprises the geography, history, folklore, and cultural expression of life in the forward wave of American expansion that began with English colonial settlements in the early 18th century and ended with the admission of the last mainland territories as states in 1912. Frontier" refers to a contrasting region at the edge of a European-American line of settlement. American historians cover multiple frontiers but the folklore is focused primarily on the 19th century west of the Mississippi River. We shall consider the whole frontier belt, including the Indian country and the outer margin of the "settled area" of the census reports.

During the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, immigrants from Spain, Sweden, Ireland, Italy, Germany, England, and other European countries settled all across the American West. This collection of essays explores the rural and urban settlement patterns of these groups, their comparative histories, and the maintenance of their communities. Europeans came to the West from all directions via both coasts and Mexico. Luebke provides tables illustrating the distribution of foreign-born persons in the West and first- and second-generation immigrants by country of origin in the region.

In addition to the volume editor, contributors include Henry Warner Bowden, Robert C. Ostergren, Dean L. May, David M. Emmons, Dino Cinel, William Toll, Anna Zellick, Carol K. Coburn, Josef J. Barton, and Royden K. Loewen.
