Abstract

Southwestern Historical Quarterly October served elements of the ragged edge of frontier society. With time and continued use through ever-changing historical eras—from colonial times to statehood—it garnered a much wider utility and acceptance. Through a tight and well-researched chronological approach to the topic, readers will confront outlying, but related, stories associated with international trade, filibustering expeditions, short-lived rebellions, and boundary disputes. They will also encounter a wide range of interesting characters associated with the road. They include those that might be anticipated, such as Louis Juchereau de St. Denis, Sam Houston, and David Crockett, but also the unexpected, like Jean Lafitte and Peter Ellis Bean.

One of the unique strengths of the book is the second chapter, entitled “Through the Wilds,” that highlights the value of Pinkerton’s site-specific lead-in by combining historical accounts of the trace with his own firsthand experiences.
