Biographical Sketch

I earned a BA in history from the University of California, San Diego, and a MA and Ph.D from the University of California, Riverside. I have authored many scholarly articles and books over my career, including “Times Are Altered with Us:” American Indians from First Contact to the New Republic (Wiley-Blackwell, 2015),American Indian History Day by Day: A Reference Guide to Events (ABC-CLIO, 2012),Term Paper Resource Guide to Colonial American History. (Greenwood Press, 2009), The Renewed, the Destroyed, and the Remade: The Three Thought Worlds of the Huron and the Iroquois, 1609-1650. Michigan State University Press, 2004). I am currently writing Beyond the Mayflower: George Soule and Pilgrim Culture (that is just a working title), which is under contract with University of Missouri Press.

 

Research Interests

My research interests include Native America, colonization, the North American frontier, the Early Republic,and the Atlantic World. Much of my work has focused on native and European perceptions and beliefs about one another at the time of contact.
