pushed beyond the frontier

Westward movement had changed American’s face and geography. While in the early years of American Independence the original thirteen colonies were located in the east coast of America, later on the settlers then pushed beyond the frontier and went to the west. With the manifest destiny – a belief that America got its right from God to expand itself- (John Mack Faragher, Mari Jo Buhle, Daniel Czitrom, Susan H. Armitage, 1998), the spirit of going West spread out in the society. But, the journey to the west was not an easy journey. Pioneers had to face the unimaginable threats and hardly-tamable wilderness. Yet, they succeeded in conquering the land, creating myths about American West.
