on the Dawnland Frontier – Wabanaki Natives and French & English Newcomers Interacting
by Alvin Hamblen Morrison
After reading most-if-not-all of my other Mawooshen Memos (in SakamoSeries; FAQ; N&Q), and SPAP Reports Nos I-1&2; I-3,4,5; and I-6, Colin Calloway’s 1991 book Dawnland Encounters is the most-for-your-money single-book efficiency study.
But a slower-paced study could include:
