Blackfoot country was a key site of Canadian and American efforts to shape their nations and national identities. The regions landscape, aboriginal people, newcomers, railroads, and ongoing cross-border ties all challenged the governments efforts to create, colonize, and nationalize the Alberta-Montana borderlands.

The Line Which Separates makes an important and useful comparison between American and Canadian government policies and attitudes regarding race, gender, and homesteading. Drawing on a range of sources, from government maps and reports to oral testimony and personal papers, The Line Which Separates explores the uneven way in which the borderlands were superimposed on Blackfoot country in order to divide a previously cohesive region in the late nineteenth century.
