John Eliot's Indian Dialogues: A Study in Cultural Interaction
Bowden and Ronda have edited a classic from the Indian mission frontier in North America. Bowden's expertise in church history and Ronda's thorough understanding of the Native American predicament on the New England frontier are clearly reflected in this excellent volume. Thanks to their extremely useful introduction and the publication of a difficult-to-obtain tract, this book represents a valuable contribution to the growing body of ethnographic literature available to researchers.
