These works were inspired by Frederick Jackson Turner’s ‘The significance of the frontier in American history’ in which he writes:
‘The wilderness masters the colonist. It finds him a European in dress, industries, tools, modes of travel, and thought. It takes him from the railroad car and puts him in the birch canoe. It strips off the garments of civilization and arrays him in the hunting shirt and the moccasin.’
