The result is a text that reveals the diversity, difficulties, and fortunes of this increasingly powerful but little-understood part of the North American West.

Contributions by historians, geographers, anthropologists, and scholars of criminal justice and environmental studies provide a comprehensive picture of the history of the borderlands region of the western United States and Canada.The Borderlands of the American and Canadian Wests is divided into six parts: Defining the Region, Colonizing the Frontier, Farming and Other Labor Interactions, the Borderlands as a Refuge in the Nineteenth Century, the Borderlands as a Refuge in the Twentieth Century, and Natural Resources and Conservation along the Border.

Topics include the borderlands’ environment- its aboriginal and gender history- frontier interactions and comparisons- agricultural and labor relations- tourism- the region as a refuge for Mormons, far-right groups, and Vietnam War resisters- and conservation and natural resources. These areas show how the history and geography of the borderlands region has been transboundary, multidimensional, and unique within North America.
