Iroquois Stories Iroquois Stories : Heroes and Heroines Monsters and Magic
by Joseph Bruchac, Daniel Burgevin (Illustrator)


From the Introduction by Joseph Bruchac-

"All of these stories are much older than my voice. They are from the traditions of the People of the Long House. Though these are my own versions, they are based on originals which existed long ago, long before the first Europeans came to this earth on Turtle's back ... My aim has been to rediscover the oral quality of each tale and when I have finally reached the stage of writing down my own version of a story it has only been after telling that story aloud many times."

Lewis H. Morgan on Iroquois Material Culture
by Elisabeth Tooker


Charged by the New York State Cabinet of Natural History to document the Iroquois culture, Morgan (1818-1881) assembled over 500 objects, nearly all of which were destroyed in a 1911 fire. (Fine surviving color illustrations are reproduced in this volume, however.) In addition to providing an overview of this remarkable anthropologist's life and career, Tooker (anthropology, Temple U.) reprints for the first time his reports to the regents--essentially, monographic studies of Iroquois material culture--as well as previously unpublished field note descriptions of the objects in the collection.

A Well-Executed Failure : The Sullivan Campaign Against the Iroquois, July-September 1779
by Joseph R. Fischer


Offering a fresh perspective on the first of the "Indian Wars," Joseph R. Fischer reassesses the historical value of a campaign generally regarded as one of the Continental army's strategic fiascoes. The expedition led by Major General John Sullivan sought to punish the Iroquois Confederacy for a series of devastating raids in western New York and Pennsylvania. Sullivan and his four brigades of Continental regulars torched forty Iroquois settlements and destroyed 160,000 acres of corn but ultimately failed in removing the Iroquois from the conflict. Instead, the crusade increased the dependency of the Iroquois remnant on its British supporters and galvanized raiding activities. Fischer suggests that the historical focus on the campaign's failure has overshadowed its importance as a vehicle for understanding the Continental army at a turning point in the war. He demonstrates that this representative slice of the Continental army provides exceptional insight into the growing professionalism of George Washington's military.
