Abstract

230 Southwestern Historical Quarterly October the trade relationship from both Navajo and Anglo perspectives, showing how traders adapted to Navajo cultural values in order to foster trade. Here, readers versed in Navajo trading will encounter many familiar top- ics and historical figures: credit, pawn, trade tokens, livestock, freighting, weaving, and silverwork. Chapter 8, covering social life at the trading posts, offers particularly interesting sections on the lives of women at the typically male-dominated trading posts and how traders assisted Navajos in times of illness and death. The remaining four chapters focus on trade in the upper Four Corners region, using examples from trading posts in Utah and Colorado. Much of McPherson’s contribution to the existing literature lies here. These trading posts are in general far less known than those in Arizona and New Mexico and were shaped by different influences, as McPherson shows. For example, trading posts in the upper Four Corners dealt not only with Navajos, but also with Utes and Paiutes, whose cultures and economies, McPherson argues, shaped trade differently, as they lacked the Navajos’ vast sheep and goat herds and easily marketable arts and crafts. Other key cultural influences McPherson explores in these chapters include the
