Scholars have long chronicled and analyzed the contest for the Ohio Valley and the dispossession of its Native peoples. Susan Sleeper-Smith is the first to provide an in-depth examination of Indian women and how directly their indigenous economy played into the conquest. Sleeper-Smith uses the 1791 raid of Kentucky militia general Charles Scott as a framing device for the book.
