However, this isn't a book that portrays the Native Americans as innocent bystanders under European domination, nor does it glorify the British over the Americans. What comes out of the pages of this book is a story about an often forgotten War tucked between the American Revolution and the War of 1812, a War that was never officially given a name, a War that was symptomatic of Global changes in Technology and Culture that were transforming everything, a War between the old ways and the unstoppable future.
If you are interested in an easy to read historical narrative about a fascinating character in a fascinating time, this is a good book. The style of writing is creative non-fiction, with action and suspense and drama, hence it is not an Academic History book. It was exciting to follow the Author as he 'plead the case' of one of American History's biggest Revolutionary Era villains from a Canadian and Native American historic perspective.Read more ›
