How-to books were, and are, an important part of American culture. Because it was a big land, and a new land, and nearly everyone had to be self-sufficient and self-responsible, books were the resource that enabled those pioneers to go where the opportunities were and to build new farms, new ranches, new businesses, new towns, and new cities, and then to build the railroads and roads to connect them together, and the telegraph lines and phone lines, and then the radio enabling communication to make the nation whole.
