I live in Western New York near the cemetery where Chief Cornplanter is buried. I grew up near the Seneca Indian Reservation and find this beeok very interesting. I would recommend it to anybody interested in local history.

Lots of connections for me in this book. Dr. Betts was my professor at Indiana State Teachers College (now Indiana University of Pennsylvania) in the late 50s and he was an excellent teacher. I was born in Kittanning, an Indian village that figures prominently in this account, and every Spring, when my father planted a garden in our back yard, we gathered arrowheads that he unearthed. If the reader has any curiosity about the early history of the frontier just west of the Appalachians, this engaging book is a must.

Format: Paperback
The author points out that Cornplanter, son of a Seneca woman and a Dutch father, was the most prominent Indian in America during the last quarter of the eighteenth century. Although he had counseled the Iroquois federation to remain neutral during the Revolutionary War, they decided to cast their lot with the English. They paid dearly for backing the losing side. Cornplanter himself led many bloody raids against the Americans in Western Pennsylvania and Western New York. The Iroquois federation was politically over by the end of the War. Betts then covers a new diplomatic role for Cornplanter who was especially involved in the many treaties in which the Senecas ceded vast areas of their country to land-hungry Americans. Many Indians thought the Americans had swindled them, and naturally looked at Cornplanter as a scapegoat. This is a well-researched book and the definitive biography on Cornplanter.
