What happened in between-a cautionary tale of greed, incompetence, and hubris-lies at the center of this fascinating account by Harvard historian Samuel A.

Forman. Endorsed by New York Times best-selling author Nathaniel Philbrick, it is a startling and frank portrait of a young America that examines the dream of an inclusive American experience and its reality-a debate that continues today. Ill-Fated Frontier is at once a pioneer adventure and a compelling narrative of the frictions that emerged among entrepreneurial pioneers and their sixty slaves, Indians fighting to preserve their land, and Spanish colonials with their own agenda.

Here is a lively and visceral portrait of the wild and enduring American frontier in 1879.
