Eric J. Morser teaches history at Skidmore College.


"An enjoyable and innovative look into the forging of American individualism and exceptionalism."-Urban History "From the perspective of a small city in the Midwest, Morser impressively contributes to our understanding of how the 'hinterland dreams' of a small city could affect regional development."-Journal of American History "Good history occasionally intersects with good storytelling to create a remarkable result. This book is one such happy achievement... Fascinating ... Highly recommended."-Choice "Hinterland Dreams is a clearly written, well organized, and thoroughly researched work. Urban history has focused on the giants like Chicago. Smaller cities have largely been neglected until now. By examining La Crosse, Wisconsin, Morser breaks new ground and offers a needed reminder of the importance of government in urban development."-Jon C. Teaford, Purdue University
