Craig's question (6/25)

In class on Monday we spoke of Smith's interactions with, and opinon of, the Native Americans and his motives for writing as he did (political reasons, author). Compare and contrast Smith's and Bradford's opinions of/interactions with the Natives, and their possible motives for writing about the Indians as they had done. Also, could their past occupations have played a deciding role in how they wrote about the natives (i.e. Smith was in army, Bradford was self educated and deeply commited to Puritan cause)
