Acknowledgments I am especially appreciative of the support that during my work on this book I have received from my home institution, Saint Joseph’s College of Maine, and from the libraries of Saint Joseph’s College and the University of Southern Maine. My editor at ABC-CLIO, Mariah Gumpert, has been consistently help- ful and understanding. Of course, this book would not exist at all without the tremendous efforts by so many Indian leaders who have struggled to resist the destruction of their way of life or, in recent decades, to reclaim a heritage rich in cultural and spiritual values. Above all, I thank my wife, Jeanne, for her con- stant support.
