Among the many scholarly works consulted, two contributions from Dr. Michael C. Coleman of the University of Jyvaskyla (Finland) must be singled out. Presbyterian Missionary Attitudes Toward American Indians, 1837-1893 (Jackson: University of Mississippi Press, 1985) and "Christianizing and Americanizing the Nez Perce: Sue L. McBeth and her Attitudes to the Indians" (Journal of Presbyterian History, 1978).
