"Perdue's extensive introduction and assessment of Boudinot's career are distinguished by thoughtful insight and scholarly balance."
—Journal of Southern History
"Perdue has done an invaluable service in gathering together Boudinot's early published writings and providing a running critical commentary on his defense of Indian 'progress.'"
Together with Theda Perdue's biographical introduction and in-depth annotations, these letters, articles, pamphlets, and editorials document the stages of Boudinot's religious, philosophical, and political growth, from his early optimism that the Cherokees could completely assimilate into white society to his call for a separate nation of "civilized" Cherokees.
