A Hardy Pioneer must be equipped with tools before he can improve the land.
The rugged wilderness of the Americas required a tough stock of colonist. Vast stretches of forest and jungle needed to be cleared, endless seas of sand had to be crossed. All while the adventurer had to endure weather that could swing between fiery and frigid like a drunken pendulum. Many newcomers to the west were not prepared for the hardships that beset them, and entire colonies were wiped out within years of their arrival, but those that survived were able to mold this new land into the shape they desired. The lumber industry exploded as seemingly endless forests were felled. Seas of sand yielded rich minerals, gold and silver. It was only those willing and able to brave the elements - the Pioneers - that would reap the bounty of this New World.
