American West Program to Host Signature Semester Event

The Public Land History Center’s American West Program will host its signature event for Spring 2017 on Thursday, March 23 at 7:00pm in the Morgan Library Event Hall. Professor Ann Little of the Colorado State University History Department will be speaking about her book The Many Captivities of Esther Wheelwright, and will highlight the cultural, environmental, and political continuities extending from the frontiers of the colonial northeast to the frontiers of the 19th century TransMissippi West. This will be a thoughtful evening where Professor Little will be making connections between frontiers in the west and frontiers in the east.
