The Railroad and the Frontier West.
Ewig, Rick
OAH Magazine of History, v3 n2 p9-10 Spr 1988
Points out railroad building in the West as a cause rather than an effect of the rapid development of the area. Railroads hastened the demise of American Indian autonomy and their land base, brought permanent Anglo-American settlers to the West and provided a market relationship between East and West. (KO)
