her people and the perilous 17th century she lived in. The only book (AFAIK)
written from the Mohawk point of view, explaining the changing culture of the
Iroquois in the post-European-contact period with all its upheavals and Kateri's
place in it. Lovely and historically accurate illustrations by Mr Montour.
It touches on the alliances that were made between the Five Nations and New France, as well as the Dutch in the region of what is today the Northeast United States and Canada. The struggles between traditionalists and converts is also illustrated.
A work that is written by a man who claims not to be an Historian, yet he has a well organized and interdisciplinary work that has an addictive narrative, filled with smatterings of wit and personal observation.
This work adds a much needed Native American perspective and voice to the works being and having been written about the Iroquois from the seventeenth century to the present.
