New Worlds for All Europeans and the Remaking of Early America By Colin G Calloway Baltimore John Hopkins University Press 1997 Colin G Calloway effectively states to his readers that the Indians of the North America were not just pushed aside by the Europeans who had begun exploring and immigrating in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries The Europeans had influenced them but they also influenced the Europeans The Indians and the Europeans each shaped the so-called New World into what it is today known as America Neither one of them could have predicted that they would have created such a powerful country This short book explores the new worlds that Indians and Europeans created together in early America and considers how conquest changed conquered people and conquerors alike Throughout this short book Calloway retells the stories and the culture they both made to create early America 178 xiii-xiv Calloway states how Europeans did not come to America to create America or to mold themselves into something other than Indians They came over here to make a New World like the home they had left and make it better Neither the Europeans nor the Indians were looking for change nor did they want to abandon their heritage and become like a person that is so different from their own The two cultures were forced to interact because they shared the same land Neither side would get anywhere if they were constantly fighting with each other all the time therefore they had to find means of getting along Out of necessity the adapted to their changing environment by exchanging ideas and establishing relationships that allowed them to interact Later on down the road the colonists would see the unavoidable changes that had taken place within themselves and use them to proclaim their sense of independence from Great Britain and announce themselves as Americans 4 6 196-197 Battles and conflicts that came to pass between the Europeans
