This work examines often overlooked writings of Christian Indians in early America. Wyss argues that the Native Americans who converted to Christianity forged a unique identity as they negotiated their place and power between Native American tribal culture and Protestant Anglo America.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This book will fill a crucial gap in Native American literary studies. While there have been biographical studies of some of the figures Wyss discusses, and works focusing on individual authors of this period, there is no other critical work that brings such diverse forms of writing -- missionary tracts, captivity narratives, diplomatic exchanges -- together. This is well-researched, necessary scholarship.--Michael A. Elliott, Emory University
