We see how pioneer businessmen brought to the American West the institutions of the East, adapted them to the conditions at hand, enlarged upon them, and changed their character, evolving an interpretation of the American dream that equated success with material wealth - an interpretation that still shapes the image we hold of ourselves. Includes an Index.
