9780312167073: The Jesuit Relations: Natives and Missionaries in Seventeenth-Century North America (The Bedford Series in History and Culture)

As a 73-volume library, the original The Jesuit Relations has long been inaccessible to undergraduate students. Vitally important, the writings of seventeenth-century French Jesuits in Native North America tell the story of early American encounters. This new edition deftly binds them into a thematically arranged, 35-document sampler with a detailed introduction that provides background on these missionaries, the Indians, and their cohabitation in early North America. Colorful journal entries by such fathers as Paul LeJeune, Jean de Brébeuf, Isaac Jogues, and Jacques Marquette describe the Huron, Algonquin, Iroquois, and Montagnais peoples. Eleven images, two maps, a chronology, a bibliography, and questions for consideration supplement these firsthand accounts.

Author of The People of New France (1997); The Patriots and the People: The Rebellion of 1837 in Rural Lower Canada (1993); Peasant, Lord and Merchant: Rural Society in Three Quebec Parishes 1740-1840 (1985), he is also the recipient of the John Porter Prize, the Prix Lionel-Groulx, the Sir John A.

Review:

"The Jesuit Relations is among the most important scholarly sources for the study of early American history, and it's simply magic in the classroom. Greer's thoughtful translations and his concise, well-informed introduction do justice to these remarkable documents. The gripping, vivid selections from The Jesuit Relations will fully engage undergraduates, dissolve their stereotypes of both Indians and colonists, and allow them to gain a more nuanced view of life in early America."

"Once again, Allan Greer has found an engaging way to draw students closer to the cultural encounters occurring in northeastern North America during the early colonial period. His accessible translations of judiciously selected, generous samples from The Jesuit Relations will help ground fruitful class discussions ranging from native social organization to the mental worlds of Counter-Reformation clergymen."
