Excerpt from The History of the West and the Pioneers

Permit me to enlarge upon this view of the West by suggest ing that it is something more than a geographical area - some thing apart from mountains and rivers and prairies and plains. My thought has been aptly expressed by a recent writer,' who declares that the West has no fixed geographical limits like the South and New England. It is something more than a geograph ical term. Like Boston, it is a state of mind. There are moun tains and rivers and oceans within the limits of which this state of mind is preeminently to be found, but it is to be recognized in other regions as well. You can tell a Westerner as you can tell a Southerner, sometimes by his speech, always by his attitude to ward life.

The best definition of this greater West which I am now at. Tempting to suggest, is brie¿y this: The West is where a man is; the East is where he or his father came from. The West is the frontier; it stands for the latest epoch, the most recent stage in the progressive history of mankind. The West is vitality, progress, creation personified. Thus the history of the West becomes the story of evolving, developing, progressive mankind the story of the pioneers, to which America has contributed the latest chapter. As a locality the West may be shifting, but as a state of mind it is America in the making.
