The Enslavement of the American Indian in Colonial Times
This is a nonfiction account of how the colonists, in what is now the eastern and southern United States and Canada, used enslavement as a weapon of war in an effort to destroy the Indian nations and obtain the land for their own use. The English, Dutch, French, and Spanish colonists all employed enslavement of Indians as a policy until the end of the 18th century.
