Description
 
Reveals the power residing in the borders and boundaries that formed states and a nation, and also inspired the sense of identity that is central to the American character. As Americans pushed westward, the borders established by surveyors such as Andrew Ellicott -- around whose exploits this book revolves -- created property, uniting people in a desire for the gov’t. and laws that would protect it. We are, thus, defined not by open spaces but by boundaries. Those same lines had the ability to divide as well as unite, as the great battle over internal boundaries during the Civil War would show. Linklater reminds us of the unique values embodied in the boundary lines we take for granted, offering invaluable perspective on our role in the world today. Ill.
