About the Author:

J. Norman Heard (MJ, MLS, University of Texas, Austin; Ph.D., Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge), a retired librarian, has done historical research and writing for 35 years. He contributed 20 articles to the Handbook of Texas (Texas State Historical Assn, 1952) and recently wrote the article on Indian captivities for a revision in progress. He has published Bookman's Guide to Americana, 9th ed. (1986), Hope Through Doing (1968), The Black Frontiersmen (1069), and White Into Red (1973). In 1976 he founded the Acadian Village, a restoration of an 18th-century Louisiana bayou town, to preserve the Acadian heritage and provide income for the Lafayette Association for Retarded Citizens.

Review:

Promises to be a useful reference tool.... Recommended. (Library Journal)

Heard handles the problems of bias, conflicting information, and nomenclature well.... Provides an astonishing amount of elusive information, including some on women, blacks, and captives. Highly recommended. (CHOICE)

Heard approaches his subject with reportorial objectivity, weighing evidence carefully...Heard has given special attention to the role of blacks and white women, especially those assimilated into Indian society...Provides brief, objective information on many persons, tribes, and events that the Dictionary of American History...does not cover. (Booklist)

Heard has assembled an impressive number of brief articles in dictionary arrangement...Students, amateur historians, and librarians probably will find the andbook useful, as will the professional not directly involved with frontier history. (Louisiana History)

...his superior encyclopedic handbook deserves its position as the first volume of a projected Native American Resources Series. (Register of the Kentucky Historical Society)

Scholars always welcome well-designed and comprehensive reference sources.... (The Annals Of Iowa)
