Abstract

BOOK REVIEWS and daily sustenance in the materials produced and distributed by religious presses. The history of these publishing firms is an important component in understanding American religious history. As shown here, individuals and societies behind such ventures were anything but naive. ¨ They learned to operate as savvy businessmen who sought to produce what they felt Americans should read, and in the process, to influence and strengthen this nation's faith. SA LL Y G . MC M IL LEN is Professor of History at Davidson College. Her most recent publication is To Raise Up the South: Sunday Schools in Black and White Churches, 1865­1915 (2001). Currently she is working on a book on Seneca Falls and the women's rights movement. Plateau Indians and the Quest for Spiritual Power, 1700­1850. By Larry Cebula. (Lincoln: University of Nebraska Press, 2003. Pp. 189. Illustrations, maps. Cloth, $49.95.) The tale of the 1847 attack on the Whitman Mission in Oregon Country and the public hanging of the five Cayuse men accused of perpetrating it often serves as a turning point in the narrative of the great overland migration to the Pacific and the demise of Indian peoples it presumably heralded.
