"Indian Converts is like no other source in the history of Atlantic coast Indians and English colonial America. It is a landmark work, and the time is well overdue for a scholarly edition. Laura Leibman is an able scholar to see this project to fruition. She brings to her work not only a comprehensive understanding of colonial literature, consistent with her disciplinary training, but a firm command of the relevant historiography and primary sources.... Editorially, she has done a superb job." - David J. Silverman, author of Faith and Boundaries: Colonists, Christianity, and Community among the Wampanoags of Martha's Vineyard, 1600-1871"
