ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the book "Pioneer's Progress," by Alvin S. Johnson. Johnson's remarkable versatility and range of interest are partly a matter of his own personality and partly a result of the time arid the part of the world in which he grew up. The prairie states toward the end of the nineteenth century , were an area where things seemed to be getting better and better. His lifetime has embraced two world wars, the worst of all depressions and the urgent challenge of totalitarianism to democracy, yet his book lays little stress on any of these things and on the whole, his native prairie optimism seems intact.
