Timothy J. Shannon"Preston''s astute analysis challenges our notions of the geographic and racial barriers that separated native and colonial peoples along the early American frontier. In settler communities stretching from Montreal to western Maryland, he recovers the contours of everyday contact, negotiation, and exchange among peoples from remarkably diverse backgrounds, illuminating the bonds that held them together and the conflicts that eventually drove them apart. This book is an enjoyable and rewarding read for anyone interested in the fate of the Iroquois and their neighbors in eighteenth-century America."
