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. Rivalry began soon after initial discovery, mapping, and exploration as the world powers, particularly England and France, competed for control of the lucrative fur trade in the Mississippi valley. The French attempted to establish trade networks stretching from the Atlantic Ocean inland to the Mississippi River and northward from ports on the Gulf of Mexico to the Ohio River. But they found the British already entrenched there.

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
