Críticas:

"Reda offers a new perspective on the history of the Illinois Country, which deserves a wide readership of those interested in the scholarship of the Midwest and the North American frontier." --Journal of Illinois History "John Reda's From Furs to Farms: The Transformation of the Mississippi Valley, 1762-1825 addresses many issues that historians have identified as critical in the 'new' history of American western expansion and development. He does so persuasively, with exceptional elegance in prose and an impressive talent for narrative compression." --American Historical Review "[This] succinct and pointed history of the white settlement of the Mississippi Valley challenges the oversimplified and convenient notion of Manifest Destiny. . . . Like the work of all diligent, mindful scholars, Reda's account of the history is complex." --Foreword Reviews "By spotlighting the local and by looking beyond the boundaries that are to the boundaries that were, From Furs to Farms offers a worthy model for future studies of early American places." --Register of the Kentucky Historical Society "This volume sheds important new interpretive light on an often-underappreciated layer of US history. Highly recommended." --CHOICE "Reda provides a welcome, readable account of the formative years of Missouri and Illinois. While emphasizing the place of economics in their formation, he also restores the Mississippi River to its historical role as a short fence between close neighbors, rather than an impermeable barrier." --Robert M. Owens, author of Red Dreams, White Nightmares: Pan-Indian Alliances in the Anglo-American Mind, 1763-1815 "John Reda's careful narrative is an important contribution to the history of the Early Republic. Astutely emphasizing personal security, property rights, and white supremacy, Reda forcefully argues that the successful incorporation of the Illinois Country's inhabitants into the new nation was part of a larger displacement of the fur trade by commercial agriculture." --Andrew Cayton, The Ohio State University "From Furs to Farms is a significant and original contribution to the study of the history of the upper Mississippi Valley. Reda's scholarship is sound." --Walter Nugent, author of Habits of Empire: A History of American Expansion "Reda's work reminds us that the histories of Missouri and Illinois remained intertwined into the nineteenth century as the region moved from an economy dependent on furs to one based in land as real estate. In Reda's capable hands, the Mississippi River emerges as an 'international crossroads, ' not an international border." --Ann Durkin Keating, North Central College "Reda's book has much to recommend it. He admirably untangles the political machinations of francophone elites and American officials as they navigated the aftermath of the Louisiana Purchase and negotiated the fate of Spanish land grants." --Missouri Historical Review "[This] succinct and pointed history of the white settlement of the Mississippi Valley challenges the oversimplified and convenient notion of Manifest Destiny. . . .
