To Let Go a Dream To Let Go A Dream (Paperback)
by Rhoda Goldstein


The story describes the personal struggles of an eighteenth-century pioneer girl captured and bought up by the Iroquois. This carefully researched account not only explores the animosity felt by the differing ethnic and regional groups, but also delves into the positive and very humane attitudes of these very same people. As the young white girl, Calli, grows to be a part of the Indian community, she learns more than tribal skills and customs; she begins to truly understand and appreciate the wisdom, the loyalty, the sense of fairness, and most of all the great compassion the members of her new extended family share with her. Throughout the book we see the young heroine contend with the past until she can ultimately accept the present.

In Mohawk Country In Mohawk Country: Early Narratives of a Native People (The Iroquois and Their Neighbors) (Paperback)
by Dean R. Snow (Editor), Charles T. Gehring (Editor), William A. Starna (Editor)


Reviewer: A reader
As a Mohawk historian I am very impressed with this book, which brings together numerous source which may well have taken me years to find otherwise. It offers us insight into what the early colonists thought about as well as descriptions of what they saw and experienced in visiting the Mohawk villages. I would love to see a similar treatment of the other Iroquois nations as well as other aboriginal peoples. While there are a few accounts that may come across as racist to the modern reader, it is nevertheless an opportunity to "time travel" to the old Mohawk homeland. This book should be required reading for anyone who wants to study Mohawk history.

Men at Arms Men-at-Arms 395: Tribes of the Iroquois Confederation (Paperback)
by Michael Johnson, Jonathan Smith (Illustrator)


The Five (later, Six) Nations of the Iroquois Confederacy were central to the story of the white colonization of the American Northeast. The European fur trade in North America transformed the Iroquois world, and the tribes were soon forced to take sides in the struggles between English and French colonists. Thanks to the efforts of the remarkable Sir William Johnson in the Mohawk Valley, the Iroquois Nations were for the most part allies of the British crown; and Johnson's loyal kinsman Joseph Brant (Thayendanegea) forced the Mohawks into Canadian exile during the American Revolution. This fascinating introduction to Iroquois history, social organization, religion and material culture is illustrated with rare photographs and eight dazzling color plates.
