"Richardson's work demonstrates just how varied and rich eighteenth-century representations of North American 'Indians' were. While the 'Indian' as a representational figure had, since first contact, always been multivalent and employed to critique European culture or justify certain political or religious persuasions, Richardson nonetheless rightly highlights the complexities, fluctuations, and increasing malleability of these representations in the eighteenth century." -- Rachel Winchcombe, University of Manchester * Journal of British Studies *
