About this book

Frontier dramas were among the most popular and successful of early-twentieth-century Broadway type plays. The long runs of contemporary dramas not only indicate the popularity of these plays but also tell us that these plays offered views about the frontier that original audiences could and did embrace.

Reviews

"The wealth of allusions, ranging from Theodore Roosevelt's role in shaping attitudes about the frontier to the impact of railroads, enlivens the evocation of this crucial decade in American self-definition . . . Recommended." - CHOICE

'Wattenberg's work is intelligent, well-informed, and wide-ranging, and his analyses of the plays are excellent. It delves in detail into material that has been too often overlooked and underappreciated. There is really nothing like this.' Roger Hall, Professor of Theatre, James Madison University
