By David G McCrady

Now in paperback, Living with Strangers tells the tale of the Sioux who moved into the Canadian-American borderlands within the later years of the 19th century. David G. McCrady's award-winning research crosses nationwide obstacles to ascertain how local peoples on each side of the border reacted to the coming of the Sioux. utilizing fabric from documents throughout North the United States, together with Canadian and American executive records, Lakota iciness counts, and oral histories, McCrady unearths that the nineteenth-century Sioux acted with lively self-interest around the Canadian-American border.

The Sioux's moving tactical use of the Canada-United States boundary helped them to create cross-border buying and selling competitions, to open negotiations with either governments to figure out which state might accord them greater therapy, and to exploit the border as a guard in occasions of conflict with the us. Living with Strangers takes readers past the normal dichotomy of the Canadian and the yank West to bare major and formerly unknown strands in Sioux history.
