Trans-Appalachian Frontier by Malcolm J. Rohrbough
Book DescriptionThe first American frontier lay just beyond the Appalachian Mountains and along the Gulf Coast. Here, successive groups of pioneers built new societies and developed new institutions to cope with life in the wilderness. In this thorough revision of his classic account, Malcolm J. Rohrbough tells the dramatic story of these men and women from the first Kentucky settlements to the closing of the frontier. Rohrbough divides his narrative into major time periods designed to establish categories of description and analysis, presenting case studies that focus on the county, the town, the community, and the family, as well as politics and urbanization. He also addresses Spanish, French, and Native American traditions and the anomalous presence of African slaves in the making of this story.

The California Gold Rush began in 1848 and incited many "wagons west". However, only half of the 300,000 gold seekers travelled by land. The other half travelled by sea. This book tells the story of this second group. It examines the California Gold Rush through the eyes of 30,000 French participants.
