Abstract

John Fraser Hart reviews the persistence of small towns in the upper Midwest despite forecasts of their demise in the early 1960s. After observing these communities for half a century, Hart too now sees their demise as a possibility, unless they recruit a new generation of immigrants. John Hudson focuses on the "Big Empty," the Missouri Plateau, as a scene of conflict in shaping our interpretations of the American West. He provides a critical review of land-management concepts as they apply to this vast grassland that is losing its population, but not its position as a center for controversy in Western history.
