Settling Ohio
First Peoples and Beyond
Edited by Timothy G. Anderson and Brian Schoen
· Foreword by M. Duane Nellis
· Afterword by Glenna J. Wallace

Scholars working in archaeology, education, history, geography, and politics tell a nuanced story about the people and dynamics that reshaped this region and determined who would control it. This volume retells a worn story as one of contested spaces, competing visions of nationhood, and complicated relations with Native American peoples.
