Sacred Feathers: The Reverend Peter Jones (Kahkewaquonaby) and the Mississauga Indians, second edition, is the first comprehensive biography of Peter Jones, the son of a Welsh surveyor and a Mississauga woman. Born in 1802, Peter Jones lived a distinguished life literally between two worlds. He lived the traditional Ojibwa lifestyle with his mother's family in southern Ontario. Later he lived with his father learning English and a trade. Following his conversion, Peter became a Methodist minister. Throughout his life, Peter Jones worked for the betterment of his mother's people, travelling to England several times to petition for his people's land claims. Donald Smith draws on Jones's letter, diaries, sermons and his history of the Ojibwa, as well as the diaries of his English wife to write this engaging narrative. Sacred Feathers not only tells the story of a remarkable man but the history of Indian-white relations in early Canada. Historian Donald B. Smith has made countless contributions to the study of the history of the Mississaugas of New Credit including this outstanding biographical account.
