In many respects early Pennsylvania was the prototype of North American development. Its conservative defense of liberal individualism, its population of mixed national and religious origins, its dispersed farms, county seats, and farm-service villages, and its mixed crop and livestock agriculture served as models for much of the rural Middle West. To many western Europeans in the eighteenth century life in early Pennsylvania offered a veritable paradise and refuge from oppression. Some called it "the best poor man's country in the world." The Best Poor Man's Country was the winner of the Albert J. Beveridge Award of the American Historical Society.

An exciting new book that reveals both the diversity of Virginia's Appalachian culture and that of the scholars working on it. -- Daniel B. Thorp, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State UniversityFocusing on the early Virginia frontier, the essays in Diversity and Accommodation stress the importance of cultural pluralism in backcountry society and the need to replace stereotypical images with realistic conclusions based on a detailed case-study approach.The contributors to this collection argue that traditional views -- of ethnic and cultural isolation, of German clannishness and Scots-Irish individualism -- contain a kernel of truth but are far too restrictive and simplistic. While acknowledging that distinct ethnic and cultural groups did exist on the Virginia frontier and that their effect on the development and heritage of the region was significant, these scholars show that accommodation, adaptation, exchange, and coexistence among such groups played a more important part in the cultural dynamics of the area than previous studies have indicated.Drawing on the methods and findings of various disciplines -- including social history, archaeology, ethnic studies, and material culture studies -- the essays encompass key aspects and phases of the Virginia frontier experience. Among the topics covered are the earliest trade relationships between English Virginians and the Native American societies, the impact of immigrants from Ulster and the Rhineland, the African American presence and the nature of slavery in the region, and the development of community ties in southwest Virginia. The final section examines the ways in which backcountry architecture reflected both the earlysettlers' backgrounds as well as their adaptations to their new environment.With their fresh insights and innovative analysis, the essays in Diversity and Accommodation make an important contribution to the growing body of scholarship on the role of the frontier and backcountry regions in American history.
