    Walt Whitman honors the pioneers, those enduring people moving out and settling the west, paving the way for future generations.
    In Whitman's time, the American west was being settled by people who were adventurous, willing to take risks and rise to unknown challenges, work hard at establishing the future expansion of this country. He admires them and understands their important role in helping provide land and homes for the future of our country. (Report) Reply
