The Poor Indians: British Missionaries, Native Americans, and Colonial Sensibility
University of Pennsylvania Press, 2004 - 264 páginas
Between the English Civil War of 1642 and the American Revolution, countless British missionaries announced their intention to "spread the gospel" among the native North American population. Despite the scope of their endeavors, they converted only a handful of American Indians to Christianity. Their attempts to secure moral and financial support at home proved much more successful.
