Format: Paperback
Edmund Wilson wrote this book after he realized he had given out misinformation to a British journalist regarding the Mohawk Indians of New York, who were once part of the Iroquois confederacy. (Wilson owned a home in Talcottville, NY, north of Utica, in the heart of the old Iroquois confederacy territory.) He researched and studied as much as he could about the Mohawks (and the Senecas, the Tuscaroras, and the Iroquois). He began writing about what he learned, particularly about the land squabbles these tribes had with the government mainly over treaty lands and the building of huge dams that threatened them. Wilson combined the Indians's modern-day struggles with their ancient rites. A well-known chapter concerns the Mohawk "Skywalkers" who helped construct the highest reaches of the Empire State Building. As with everything Wilson wrote, the book is highly informative, even authoritative, and extremely well written.

After seeing the movie black Robe and reading Brian Moore's novel on which it is based, re-reading Wilson's study of the Iroquois in the mid-20th century was a real eye-opener. Revisiting the vicissitudes of America's indigenous population is ironically instructive as our government agonizes over immigration policy and what to do in the Middle East.
