But above all else, Rondas book is centred on stories and storytellers. The beginning of the nineteenth century represents a time when America passed into a headlong rush for empire and when the West loomed large as a dream for some and a nightmare for others, an era that irrevocably shaped the new American nation in the two hundred years that followed. Whoever the storyteller in the aftermath of that encounter -- native or newcomer -- the stories all soon revolved around a common theme: the coming of the winds of change.

Rondas masterful interpretation of the young Republics fascination with the West is written with grace, narrative sweep, and a conviction that history should, above all else, engage and inform us.
