About the Book

An intensive exploration of the changes experienced by the Comanches and Caddoans during Spain's occupation of the Southern Plains (1689-1921), McCollough focuses on the relationship between political and economic conditions and patterns of settlement, production and social reproduction. Challenging historical views that structure a dichotomy of the colonizers and the colonized, this study examines global, regional and local populations as it details the points of interface between Euro-American markets, Native American commodities and indigenous social groups in this early colonial period.


"This is a fine work…" -- David La Vere, University of North Carolina, Wilmington

"…the book is of indisputable importance because it highlights the connections between Native groups with diverse modes of making a living that juggled the presence of colonial powers to maximize their position within emergent colonial economies." -- Maria F. Wade, Department of Anthropology, University of Texas at Austin
