"Schneider, the author of "The Adirondacks: A History of America's First Wilderness" and "The Enduring Shore: A History of Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, and Nantucket," deftly describes the striking reversal of roles between the native North Americans and their would-be enslavers. Having come to the New World believing that they were not only conquerors but also saviors — bringing civilization and Christianity to the savages — the Spaniards soon found themselves objects of the Indians' pity and disgust. Sick, naked and starving, they moved one tribe to tears. And when they resorted to cannibalism, they were nearly massacred for the abomination."
