520    A fresh history of the West grounded in the lives of mixed
       -descent Native families who first bridged and then 
       collided with racial boundaries.   Often overlooked, there
       is mixed blood at the heart of America. And at the heart 
       of Native life for centuries there were complex households
       using intermarriage to link disparate communities and 
       create protective circles of kin. Beginning in the 
       seventeenth century, Native peoples—Ojibwes, Otoes, 
       Cheyennes, Chinooks, and others—formed new families with 
       young French, English, Canadian, and American fur traders 
       who spent months in smoky winter lodges or at boisterous 
       summer rendezvous. These families built cosmopolitan trade
       centers from Michilimackinac on the Great Lakes to 
       Bellevue on the Missouri River, Bent’s Fort in the 
       southern Plains, and Fort Vancouver in the Pacific 
       Northwest. Their family names are often imprinted on the 
       landscape, but their voices have long been muted in our 
       histories. Anne F. Hyde’s pathbreaking history restores 
       them in full.  Vividly combining the panoramic and the 
       particular,  Born of Lakes and Plains  follows five mixed-
       descent families whose lives intertwined major events: 
       imperial battles over the fur trade; the first extensions 
       of American authority west of the Appalachians; the 
       ravages of imported disease; the violence of Indian 
       removal; encroaching American settlement; and, following 
       the Civil War, the disasters of Indian war, reservations 
       policy, and allotment. During the pivotal nineteenth 
       century, mixed-descent people who had once occupied a 
       middle ground became a racial problem drawing hostility 
       from all sides. Their identities were challenged by the 
       pseudo-science of blood quantum—the instrument of 
       allotment policy—and their traditions by the Indian 
       schools established to erase Native ways. As Anne F. Hyde 
       shows, they navigated the hard choices they faced as they 
       had for centuries: by relying on the rich resources of 
       family and kin. Here is an indelible western history with 
       a new human face.    Cover art:  Sault Ste. Marie, Showing
