not yet rated|write a review

In the heart of North America, the Missouri, Ohio, and Mississippi rivers come together, uniting waters from west, north, and east on a journey to the south. This is the region that Stephen Aron calls the American Confluence. Aron's innovative book examines the history of that region-a home to the Osage, a colony exploited by the French, a new frontier explored by Lewis and Clark-and focuses on the region's transition from a place of overlapping borderlands to one of oppositional border states. American Confluence is a lively account that will delight both the amateur and professional historian.

Editorial Reviews

"A real pleasure to read, the book adds considerably to the anthropological discussion about the degree to which invading people are successful in transplanting their culture and the degree to which they are transformed by the new environment and peoples they are invading." -Missouri Historical Review
