A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. Examining seven states of the Far West, this book reveals how Americans used cities and towns to build their Western empire, developing their urban centers with wealth from the hinterlands - San Fransisco, for example, built its initial fortune on the gold of the Mother Lode - and supplying their growing populations with foodstuffs and other essential resources from their rural tributaries, while at the same time using their regional connections as outlets for the goods and services of the cities.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Examining seven states of the Far West, this book reveals how Americans used cities and towns to build their Western empire, developing their urban centers with wealth from the hinterlands - San Fransisco, for example, built its initial fortune on the gold of the Mother Lode - and supplying their growing populations with foodstuffs and other essential resources from their rural tributaries, while at the same time using their regional connections as outlets for the goods and services of the cities.

Critique:

"This important book will fill a gap in the literature and, in its comprehensive treatment of the development of urban networks across all areas of the Far Western states, should become a definitive, much quoted work." - Timothy R. Mahoney, author of River Towns of the Great West: The Structure of Provincial Urbanization on the American Midwest, 1820-1870"
