“Changes in the Land exemplifies, and realizes, the promise of ecological history with stunning effect. Setting his sights squarely on the well-worn terrain of colonial New England, [Cronon] fashions a story that is fresh, ingenious, compelling and altogether important. His approach is at once vividly descriptive and profoundly analytic.” ―John Demos, The New York Times Book Review
“A superb achievement: Cronon has changed the terms of historical discourse regarding colonial New England.” ―Wilcomb E. Washburn, director of the Office of American Studies, Smithsonian Institution
“A cogent, sophisticated, and balanced study of Indian-white contact. Gracefully written, subtly argued, and well informed, it is a work whose implications extend far beyond colonial New England.” ―Richard White, Michigan State University
“This is ethno-ecological history at its best . . . American colonial history will never be the same after this path-breaking, exciting book.” ―Wilbur R. Jacobs, University of California, Santa Barbara
