What People are Saying About This

James Axtell

Gordon Day's passionate engagement with New England's Indian cultures took the form not of uncritical sentimentality, but profound respect and disciplined understanding. His careful scholarship displays those quiet qualities without ever hiding his sustained admiration for Native people and their complex pasts and presents.

William A. Haviland

Not only did Day 'pioneer' a new field, but his publications remain basic sources today for anyone at all interested in this field. His articles are superb examples of ethnohistoric methodology.... I would add that Day's prose is an absolute pleasure to read.

Neal Salisbury

These essays confirm the astonishing breadth of Day's interest and scholarship and the meticulous, disciplined way he conducted research and wrote. Before Day began his work, scholars knew virtually nothing about the Western Abenakis and the Indian history of northwestern New England. This volume has the virtue of pulling together his most important pieces.
