‘Home on the Range’: Rootedness and Identity in the Borderlands of the Nineteenth-Century American West (Palgrave)
"‘Home on the Range’: Rootedness and Identity in the Borderlands of the Nineteenth-Century American West" is a 10,000 word chapter in Borderlands, eds. Chad Bryant, Paul Readman (Palgrave, forthcoming 2014). It looks in detail at the daily realities of the men and women who inhabited a particular borderland: the trans-Mississippi West of the mid to late nineteenth century. The chapter analyses the original, unedited diaries kept, the houses constructed and the artifacts used by pioneer homesteaders in present-day Nebraska and by travelers on the Overland Trails to California, Oregon and Utah. In its conclusion, it uses the nineteenth-century men and women’s experience and practice to question the supposedly unsettling nature of borderlands and the assumed stability of home and self.
