Our Savage Neighbors: Book summary and reviews of Our Savage Neighbors by Peter Silver
Our Savage Neighbors Summary
The colonial communities of eighteenth-century America were perhaps the most racially, ethnically, and religiously mixed societies on earth. Lutherans and Presbyterians, Quakers, Catholics, and Covenentors, the Irish, the German, the French, the Welshgroups that rarely intermingled in Europewere thrown together when they confronted the American countryside. Rather than embracing the inescapable and ever-increasing diversity, the European settler communities had their very existence threatened by the tensions and fears among their own groups. Only through "Indian-hating"in both military and rhetorical formscould the splintered colonists find a common ground.
