Overview

A classic resource on the struggle for dominance in southern North America during the colonial period.

This volume recounts the clashes and intrigues that played out over the landscape of the Old Southwest and across six decades as the Spanish, French, British, and ultimately Americans vied for control. Verner Crane guides us through this multinational struggle and navigates the border wars and diplomatic intrigues that played crucial roles in the settlement of the South by Euro-Americans. In his new introduction, Steven Hahn places the work in the context of its time, sketches its publication history, and provides biographical information on Crane. 

"It was during the critical period from 1670 to 1732 that the tide changed from Spanish to English dominance of the southeastern United States. Crane's treatment of this colonial era is clear, concise, and persuasive. . . . Highly recommended."--Frank T. Schnell, author of introduction to Jones' Antiquities of the Southern Indians, Particularly of the Georgia Tribes

Verner W. Crane (1889-1930) taught in the history department at the University of Michigan and authored several books, including Benjamin Franklin and a Rising People. Steven C. Hahn is a historian at St. Olaf College and author of The Invention of the Creek Nation: A Political History of the Creek Indians in the South's Imperial Era, 1540-1736.
