The article examines life in frontier regions of the Spanish empire in the Americas. In particular, it discusses the presence of Europeans in the colonial frontier areas of the Amazon River in South America and the Sierra del Nayar in New Spain. It analyzes these Europeans' response to and interaction with the natural surroundings and indigenous peoples of these areas, focusing on the imposition of European ideas. The article relies in part on accounts authored by French explorer Charles-Marie de la Condamine during his 1735 scientific expedition to South America.
