Considerable theoretical and empirical research has been conducted on the experience of bonds between people and the tangible surrounds of home place. These bonds have been described as attachment to or rootedness in place as well as home place as an integral aspect of the development and expression of personal and group identity. Yet many of these same scholars have expressed concern over the growing rupture between people and places in American society. This research reports on interviews with residents of the Denver metropolitan area that suggest that mobile Americans may not necessarily consider themselves as rootless; rather, the experience of people-home place bonds may generalize to the experience of psychological bonds with a type of settlement.
