From the Publisher"...a rich narrative of fascinating characters...small criticisms are heavily outweighed by Vaughan's commendable achievement of collecting and vibrantly retelling these stories in such a way as to continually highlight the diversity of these encounters, in which American Indian visitors acted as agents, captives, showpieces, and ambassadors."
- H-Atlantic, Troy Bickham, Department of History, Texas A&M University
"It is to Vaughan's credit that he is able to bring such disparate and incomplete material together into a coherent whole that will appeal to anyone interested in the transatlantic dimensions of the European-Indian encounter."
Timothy J. Shannon, The Journal of American History
"This is a fascinating, fast-paced, throughly documented, and highly readable book...With a keen eye for colorful detail, the author deserves praise for his efforts to identify and describe the historical dramatis personae, their motives, challenges, and often unhappy endings...Professor Vaughan deserves abundant praise for this deeply researched book...Vaughan's book makes us rethink who were the real savages in the colonial encounter."
Harald E. L. Prins, Canadian Journal of History
"Vaughan has been a productive presence in the scholarship on colonial America for more than four decades, and his work has consistently been of high quality...His research is sound; he is reasonably open to interpretive approaches; and he writes well." -Frederic W. Gleach, The Journal of Interdisciplinary History
"...Vaughan eloquently accomplishes his objective of compiling a comprehensive story of Indian visitors to Britain." -Elizabeth Mancke, New England Quarterly
