Review quote

Very good for upper division undergraduate courses in Native American history. Gerald McKevitt, Santa Clara University Of all the books published in the last several years dealing with Indian-white relations, this surely one of the best. The Historian An important work that should be of interest to all those looking for what happened the day after Thanksgiving. History: Reviews of New Books Carefully researched and well written. The Journal of American History By far the best source of information about the contact period in New England. Salisbury's account of the causes of the Pequut War is thoroughly researched and very readable. I recommend it for any introductory course on the American Indians.
