How did the European conquest of New England dramatically alter its environment?

1) Your opening paragraph should briefly address these two questions: In general, what is this book about? What is Cronons thesis?2) When Europeans first arrived in New England, what did they find and what did they view as particularly striking about this new environment?What were the most important ways the New England environment differed from that of Europe? In what ways did they believe that environment to be of value to them?3) Explain how the New England environment – plants, animals, climate, topography – accounted for the diversity found in the Indian tribes that lived there. In particular, how does it explain why northern New England tribes differed from those in southern New England? What were those differences? In what ways did the New England environment shape or influence the development of the lifestyles and society of the tribes that lived there? How did Indians shape or manipulate the environment to fit their lifestyles?4) Describe the respective roles of men and women in Indian society.5) The Indian view of property and land possession differed significantly from that of Europeans. Compare and contrast the views of Indians and Europeans on the issues of property and land possession. How were these different views a product of their different lifestyles and cultures? How did the Europeans different views on those subjects lead them to be critical of the Indian way of life and to justify their taking of Indian land?6) Discuss the impact of European diseases on Indian populations and society. Why were the Indians so susceptible to these diseases? In what ways did disease change and devastate Indian society?7) How did the European conquest of New England dramatically alter its environment? In particular, discuss how the European demand for certain animal and plant products changed the character of that environment. How did European farming practices affect New Englands environment? This discussion should include at least two examples of plants/animals that were profoundly affected by these changes.8) What was your opinion of the book? Would you recommend it to others?
