Abstract

For this thesis the term "frontier" means more than the definition of having no more than two non-Indian settlers per square mile (Turner 3). The values and attitudes accompanying the physical frontier are more pertinent to this study of Larry McMurtry's Horseman, Pass By. However, to recognize McMurtry's use of conventional perceptions of the frontier's influence in this novel, we must first trace the development of these associations.
