This pipeline segment, like other Amazon River Transplant pieces, is constructed from the overlapping histories of natural resources, landscape, and the American West. It is comprised of writings describing Westward Expansion and pioneer folklore, including the stories of Paul Bunyan, Davy Crockett, Daniel Boone, and the letters of Thomas Jefferson.
