THE CHANGING WEST by William Allen White


Email this review


A tribute to the West, its growth, its strength, its power, by its outstanding journalist. He traces, step by step, the process by which the West came into control of Congress, and the growth of the Farm Bloc, with its surprisingly liberal trends. He shows how, in recent years, the absorption of the increment -- call it unearned if necessary -- in land values has forced agricultural areas back, though, in analayzing material possessions they have more goods and chattels than their ancestors. He believes that it lies in them to take up the standard again, for in the human beings that comprise the West lies the blood and spirit of pioneers, builders of new frontiers.
