First published in 1989, this study portrays ordinary Americans, though affected by the upheaval of social and geographical expansion, simply pursuing their personal lives. Sutherland combines dating and marriage customs, life in the gambling dens and more, with memoirs to give a glimpse of the middle class groping its way to the modern world.

Book Description University of Arkansas Press, United States, 2000. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. During this period, five states joined the Union?Kansas, West Virginia, Nevada, Nebraska and Colorado?and the population reached nearly forty million. The westward movement was given a boost by the cornpletion of the first intercontinental railroad, and migration from farms and villages to towns and cities increased, accompanied by a shift from rural occupations and crafts to industrial tasks and trades. Overall, the pursuit of middle-class status became a driving force. As this book illustrates, however, most people, though affected by the major upheavals of history, simply pursued their personal lives. Sutherland chronicles dating and marriage customs, the dangers and discomforts of mining, and life in the gambling dens, saloons, dance halls, and "cathouses" of the period. Through extensive quotations from diaries, letters, and the popular press, the reader glimpses an American middle class just beginning to grope its way toward the modern world.
