In this account of the patterns of contact and conquest on America's frontiers over the course of four centuries, the author argues for abandoning the tradition that made this a separate chapter of American history. He shows how the American leaders, beginning with Washington and Jefferson, pursued a policy of national expansion and development that enabled the United States to become the dominant power on the North American continent. Within this framework, he also explores the settlers' diverse and complex interactions with Indians as enemies, allies and trading partners.
