I continue to be impressed by his writing, as well as his dedication to the subject.

Just one comment on this very thorough article: "Canada" in the 17th century did not necessarily mean what we think of today as our neighbor to the north; anywhere north of the Massachusetts border might be called "Canada". So when the indigenous people "kidnapped" Euro women and children they didn't necessarily bring them as far north as Mike's neck of the woods. BTW, records indicate that fully 1/3 of the captive women refused repatriation to their White husbands when it was offered to them.
