Pages yellowed but card covers show only light wear ; A tight solid book. ; Trade PB; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 125 pages; "The missionaries who brought Christianity to the Indians of Southern Ontario also attempted to introduce 'civilization' in accordance with European models. In fulfilling their mission they played a crucial role as agents of change in Indian religion, education, politics, economics, technology and medicine. That they also acted as a protective buffer between the Indians and the exploitative traders and government agents was apparently not regarded as contradictory. By the end of the eighty-three year period studied the Indian people had moved from relative independence to a condition of isolation in reserve communities and dependendence upon a foreign government. Using missionary and government reports, letters, and diaries of the period as source material Dr. Graham traces the movements of various Indian groups and analyzes some of the elements involved in this confrontation between two vastly different cultures."
