A quarter-century of Preston's academic life was spent at McMaster University and his work, Cree Narrative (2nd edition, MQUP, 2002), which was based on the oral accounts, was recognized as a pioneering work in cognitive anthropology. The contributions to this festschrift are written by his former students and colleagues and include an interview with Preston that explores how his Quaker inclinations have influenced his work. The book opens with a biography of the honoree and goes on to explore themes such as development and urbanization, material culture, and conflict."--"@en ;
