Description

Dry Bones and Indian Sermons: Praying Indians in Colonial America is a recent publication from Cornell University Press by Kristina Bross, Associate Professor of English at Purdue University. This volume reexamines the early seventeenth-century accounts of British missionary work among the Indians in colonial New England. She studies the writings of John Eliot, Mary Rowlandson's captivity narrative, and other European religious propaganda of the period that places Indigenous People into a revised understanding of New England settlers and their emerging history. This book should be of interest to those studying disciplines of American history, religion, and literature.
