What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Presented with nuance and style, Traders and Raiders picks up geographically where a number of recent award-winning monographs have left off. Going beyond those earlier works, this project is a major contribution to the fields of Native American history, borderlands history, and early California history.—David Igler, University of California, Irvine
