I need help with paraphrasing a paragraph

From the conditions of frontier life came intellectual traits of profound importance. The work of travelers along each frontier fromcolonial days onward describe certain common traits, and these traits have, while softening down, still persisted as surviavals in teh place of their origin, even when a higher social organization succeeded. The result is that to teh frontier the American intellect owes its striking characteristics. That coarseness and strenght combined with acuteness and acquisitiveness; that practical, inventive turn of mind, quick to find epedients; that masterful grasp of material things, lacking in the artistic but powerful to effect great ends; that restless, nervous energy; that dominant individualism, working for good and for evil, and withal that buoyancy and exuberance which comes with freedom- these are traits of the frontier, or traits called out elsewhere because of the existence of the frontier.
