Ethridge forgoes historical narrative and instead examines the Creeks’ relationship to the natural world. From the cultural, political, and economic signiﬁcance of regional waterways to the impact of civilization efforts, farming, ranching, and land speculation on Creek identity, Ethridge’s depiction of the beginning and closing of Creek country placed the Muscogee people at the epicenter of a dynamic southern frontier. Of course, the Creeks were not the only Amerindian residents of the southern borderlands.
Juliana Barr and Theda Perdue examine the plight of women on the edges of the southern borderlands. ” Barr challenges the notion that Iberian-Amerindian relations are best understood “in the context of race relations” and that “Europeans had all the power” in the backcountry exchanges. Instead, Barr contends that, in a world “where kinship provided the foundation for every institution . . ” In addition to placing women and gender relations at the center of Iberian-Indian exchanges, Barr also ﬂips the European-Amerindian power dynamic on its head by demonstrating that the Texas borderland was “a world in which Indians dictated the rules and Europeans were the ones who had to accommodate, resist, and persevere” (Barr, 2007: 1–15, 287–291).
