A centerpiece of the New History of the American West, this book embodies the theme that, as succeeding groups have occupied the American West and shaped the land, they have done so without regard for present inhabitants. Like the cowboys herding the doggies, they have cared little about the cost their activities imposed on others; what has mattered is the immediate benefit they derived from their transformation of the land.
