The trading post was where whites and Native Americans came together to exchange goods, hold meetings to discuss issues of mutual concern, and often served as the origin of what would become towns and cities. Some of them survive and are still operating today. "Old Trading Posts Of The Four Corners: A Guide To Early-Day Trading Posts Established On Or Around The Navajo, Hopi, And Ute Mountain Ute Reservations" by western historian Richard C. Berkholz is the history of these posts from their founding down to the present day. Included in this historical survey is descriptive information on their condition and directions to finding them (some of which are very difficult to locate). Most of those that continue to operate are no longer located in their original quarters or do business in the same way as they did in the 19th century. But there are a few that still occupy original buildings and visitors can get a flavor of what it was like in the Old West. A seminal and informative work of original research, "Old Trading Posts Of The Four Corners" is a welcome addition to personal, academic, and community library American History and Native American Studies reference collections, as well as supplemental reading lists for academia and non-specialist general readers alike..
