Example text

While Bolton and Bannon erected the historiographic framework of an emerging borderlands history, the field of Borderland Studies quickly developed and expanded in a number of ways after the 1970s. Over the last three decades, scholars have reconceptualized the “Boltonlands,” created new borderland historical models, and have found innovative methods to integrate new historical voices into the history of the transMississippi West. The descriptions of the trans-Appalachian West offered by these scholars scarcely resemble the frontier region described by Turner, Roosevelt, or the Boltonians.
