Making a radical departure form traditional approaches to colonial American history, this book looks back at Indian-white relations from the perspective of the Indians themselves. In doing so, Salisbury reaches some startling new conclusions about a period of crucial--yet often overlooked--contact between two irreconcilably different cultures.

"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 volume...is 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."--John Strong, Southampton College
