The first immigrants to America encountered a race of people whose ideas and manner of life were so different from their own that there could be little ground for understanding between them. European and Indian differed in their attitudes toward the natural resources -- land for farming, places for habitation, firewood and lumber, game, and fish -- and they differed in the way they used them. To the Indian, the land and its produce were not subject to individual ownership and control, but were part of a domain controlled by beings who were supernatural. So long as the Indian kept his proper place in the scheme of things, the supernaturals would aid and protect him. Contents: The White Man and the Indian; The World View of the Indian Hunter; and Indian Hunting and Trapping. Illus.
