Lethal Encounters: Englishmen and Indians in Colonial Virginia (Native America: Yesterday and Today (Hardcover)) by Alfred A. Cave

Britains first successful settlements in America occurred over 400 years ago. Not surprisingly, the historical accounts of these events have often contained inaccuracies. This compelling study of colonial Virginia is based upon the latest research, shedding new light on the tensions between the English and the American Indians and clarifying the facts about storied relationships.In Lethal Encounters: Englishmen and Indians in Colonial Virginia , the author examines why the Anglo settlers were unable to establish a peaceful and productive relationship with the regions native inhabitants. Readers will come to understand how the deep prejudices harbored by both whites and Indians, the incompatibility of their economic and social systems, and the leadership failures of protagonists like John Smith, Powhatan, Opechacanough, and William Berkeley caused this breakdown.
