Northwest of the West: the Frontier Experience on the Northwest Coast - Introduction. The idea of a "frontier," of a place that is an edge between the known and the unknown, the settled and the wild, has a prominent place in American history. Sometimes it is a particular territory, such as the North American continent west of the Missouri River.

It can be the idea of a place, something more ambiguous: a frontier is a place where you are on your own, where the rules are not yet made. The frontier can be a mental realm of new ideas, ideas about space and time and the origins of the world. For many Americans, what was “the frontier” is, geographically, that land west of the Missouri River that is characterized as dry, perhaps even arid, where crops grow with a struggle and where cattle range freely, searching for water and feed. It once had Indians and buffalo, but those have vanished, leaving hard-handed sons of toil, some cowboys, a few miners, a few deer and antelope.

Oddly enough, this is not the frontier that could be found at the far western edge of our nation. Northwest of the West: the Frontier Experience on the Northwest Coast - Introduction. Home. Culture Numérique. Se tenir informé.e.s.
