"Rollings' work is an important addition to Osage studies."
"Rollings has written a compelling and accessible book that will alter perspectives on the Osages."
""Unaffected by the Gospel" is a readable synthesis that provides an adequate introduction to the subject."
" Rollings has written an interesting account of the Osage Nation, tracing the effects of colonial contact and conquest."
"Rollings presents an extremely informative synopsis of Osage diplomatic history from the earliest French contact to lay the background for the nineteenth-century missions."
..."Rollings provides readers with an engaging and thoughtful book that should appeal to anyone interested in the interactions between Osages and missionaries in the nineteenth century."
"This is more than a study on how the Osage Indians resisted efforts to "civilize" them through Christianity. It is also an explanation of how and why they adopted a policy of nonviolent resitence. . . While scholarly, "Unaffected by the Gospel" will also appeal to the general reader."
"Rollings has produced a thoughtful work."
