A critical re-evaluation of the impact of the two cultures - native and European - on each other. A revisionist narrative history of the period providing a detailed survey of the stereotypes of native people that have distorted the development of Canadian history and anthropology, and shows how historical, ethnohistorical, ethnographical, physical anthropological, economic, palaeodemographical, and archaeological approaches can and cannot be combined to produce a more accurate understanding of the past.
