"There are many ways in which you can come to the corner of North-Western Quebec which has opened up during the last quarter century .... There is yet another way of coming into that country: the way I came -- as a priest, to minister to both the people in the new towns and the people who were there already, before the towns. .... This volume, then, is not really a study of Indian people. It has been observed, particularly in Indian circles, that everybody is always studying the Indian, they may, in fact, well be the most studied people in the world, and there are few signs of this trend slackening off to any perceptible degree. What follows, then, is more of a study of 'western' attitudes, if I may put it that way, and not really a 'study' but rather a look, a few questions and ideas which came to me through a number of incidents which made me think". -- p. 1, 3.
