This book focuses on the American Cherokee people and the South Carolina settlers in the years 1608, when Charleston was established as the main town in the region, until 1785, when a treaty effectively removed the Cherokees from the region. It is concerned as much with the interaction between the two groups as the contrasts between them. The book contributes in major ways to understanding Indian-White relations in Colonial America.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'In his subtle comparative study, Mr. Hatley, who is both a historian and an environmentalist, displays a profound understanding of the Cherokee culture' New York Times Book Review
From reviews of the hardback: Steven Hahn of the University of California, San Diego (an Oxford author) calls the book `an important piece of work' that `offers a new and unusual perspective on the development of Southern society during a very crucial formative period.' Rachel N. Klein, also of the UC San Diego, whose speciality is early American Indian history, says the book is 'a fascinating and original exploration of intercultural influences and the development of ethnic consciousness that goes beyond existing work... Hatley's exploration of gender attitudes and systems of authority among the Cherokees is compelling, and his argument that these aspects of Cherokee culture provoked special anxiety among colonialists is extremely suggestive.'
