Still Working on It: Richard Slotkin, Regeneration Through Violence

It's an awesome book, but a hefty slog. I've been breaking it up with some other books, but I'm almost through this one, and will be starting out on the next one in Slotkin's trilogy.

This is fine scholarship, to be savored and enjoyed.

See, Richard Slotkin's, Regeneration Through Violence: The Mythology of the American Frontier, 1600–1860.

Also, The Fatal Environment: The Myth of the Frontier in the Age of Industrialization, 1800–1890, and Gunfighter Nation: Myth of the Frontier in Twentieth-Century America.
