Jacobss forty-six-year commitment to revising traditional American frontier history. He was among the first ethnoenvironmental scholars to write history from the Native American perspective and to analyze the relationship between Anglo destruction of the Indians and environment. His studies of Francis Parkman and Frederick Jackson Turner continue to open new avenues to their frontier histories. Jacobss lively memoir recalls his life and career, while Albert L. Hurtado discusses his professors contributions to American frontier history. A selected bibliography of Jacobss work closes the essay collection.
