KIRKUS REVIEW

The New England stamp on America as seen through Yankee migration in the West and middle West in a fascinating slant on America's development. Settlers, religious fanatics, cultists, lawyers medical men, educators, inventors, lumbermen, railroaders, promoters, politicians -- New Englanders all- went forth and left their mark on Western settlements. Throughout the West -- Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota, Kansas, Oregon all attracted New Englanders. What the influence was and the extent in each case has a definite regional appeal to New Englanders, but the fresh approach to historical detail should make this pleasant supplementary reading for history classes.
