This chapter studies pioneer settlement and research on frontiers. It shows that Bowman's interest in “pioneering” belts and frontier settlement was personal; it was previously noted that he spent some time on the family farm. The next section looks at the human geographies of the frontier and the significance of the frontier-pioneer studies project, which had to do with the course of geography as a discipline. This is followed by a discussion of geography and the social sciences. The chapter ends with sections on modern pioneering and Bowman's romance with the frontier.
