The indigenous North Americans above Mexico had successfully held off repeated European efforts to invade, settle, and hold territory for over a century. In 1610, Europeans had settlements only around Quebec City, St. Augustine, and Santa Fe. But thirty years later, Europeans controlled most of the Atlantic Ocean seaboard and central New Mexico, and European-style governments had been created in Canada and the United States. Thousands of Native Americans had died in warfare. Tens of thousands had died of disease, and epidemic after epidemic debilitated and depopulated villages, chiefdoms, and nations.
Three Bloody, Diseased, Deadly Decades is the first book to delve into the fascinating history of this 30-year period marking the beginning of modern Canada and the United States.
