From the Publisher"Mallios presents a fascinating study of early relations between Native Americans and Europeans at Ajacan, Roanoke, and Jamestown that will have wide appeal among anthropologists, historians, ethnohistorians, and archaeologists. An excellent book!"—Heather Lapham, Southern Illinois University Carbondale
"Here is a readable account of why misunderstandings of traditions and customs of obligatory gift-giving, exchange and trade transactions led to mistrust and grim violence, with a critical analysis of both sides' violations of customs and mores."
—James McCall, Chairman, 400th Anniversary Committee, Jamestown Society - First California Company
