With darkness gathering on the horizon once more, only a bold new generation of adventurers — young, daring, and dedicated to the better angels of our nature — is equal to the challenge of the New Frontier.

8. Crabgrass Frontier: The Suburbanization of the United States (1987)

 Best Frontier Books That Will Hook YouThis first full scale history of the development of the American suburb examines how “the good life” in America came to be equated with the a home of one’s own surrounded by a grassy yard and located far from the urban workplace.

11. The Saltwater Frontier: Indians and the Contest for the American Coast (2017)

 Best Frontier Books That Will Hook YouAndrew Lipman’s eye-opening first book is the previously untold story of how the ocean became a “frontier” between colonists and Indians. When the English and Dutch empires both tried to claim the same patch of coast between the Hudson River and Cape Cod, the sea itself became the arena of contact and conflict. During the violent European invasions, the region’s Algonquian-speaking Natives were navigators, boatbuilders, fishermen, pirates, and merchants who became active players in the emergence of the Atlantic World. Drawing from a wide range of English, Dutch, and archeological sources, Lipman uncovers a…

12. Intimate Frontiers: Sex, Gender, and Culture in Old California (Histories of the American Frontier) (1999)

 Best Frontier Books That Will Hook YouThis book reveals how powerful undercurrents of sex, gender, and culture helped shape the history of the American frontier from the 1760s to the 1850s.

In these settings Hurtado explores courtship, marriage, reproduction, and family life as a way to understand how men and women–whether Native American, Anglo American, Hispanic, Chinese, or of mixed blood–fit into or reshaped the roles and identities set by their race and…
