Product Overview

When Anglo-Americans looked west after the Revolution, they hoped to see a blank slate upon which to build their continental republic. However, French settlers had inhabited the territory stretching from Ohio to Oregon for over a century, blending into Native American networks, economies, and communities. Images of these French settlers saturated nearly every American text concerned with the West. Watts argues that these representations of French colonial culture--in works by writers such as George Bancroft, Francis Parkman, Margaret Fuller, and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow--played a significant role in developing the identity of the new nation.
