Column of the Americas
Ned Blackhawk's Violence over the Land provides much more than a few missing pages of what came to be the northern frontier of the Spanish colonial empire—or the early American West. More than that, it is a contribution to the living narrative of this continent...one that begins not with the arrival of three European ships in 1492, not with conquistadors or soldiers and missionaries—but rather far back to a time before recorded history on this continent...Violence over the Land is complex, layered history that covers what is nowadays referred to as the Great Basin...It is a region and a history that is normally ignored by U.S. historians.
