“Frontier is a very special book for me.
For more than thirty years in more than two hundred novels and short stories, I have written about many aspects of the American frontier experience—from the courageous explorers and early settlers of the sixteenth century on through the succeeding generations of the builders and shapers who followed them across the continent. However, for a long time, I have wanted to temporarily leave behind the boundaries of fiction to share more directly with my readers some of what I have learned and observed about our great North American land during a lifetime of study and appreciation.
This land, which we hold in trust for future generations and which is ours to improve while we live, is a remarkable land. The landscape has enormous variety, which sometimes escapes visitors. In the twenty-five essays that follow I have tried to offer a few brief aspects of the history, geology, excitement, wonder, and overwhelming power of this land.” —Louis L’Amour, from Chapter I
