Abstract

Carl Ekberg’s witty and erudite Stealing Indian Women adds to a growing list of publications o Indian slavery, a topic pioneered by Leitch Wright in his classic The Only Land They knew (181) and followed by James F. Brook’s cousins and Captives (2002) and Allan Gallay’s The Indian Slave trade (2202). Ekberg surveys Indian slavery in the Illinois country from the late seventeenth to the late eighteenth century under French and Spanish regimes.
