Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Immortalized by James Fenimore Cooper in The Last of the Mohicans , the Mohican Indians originated in the area around Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Frazier, a specialist in Native American studies with the Library of Congress, presents a detailed, scholarly account of these Indians; he hopes to make his readers aware of the contributions they made to America's history. He covers the Mohicans' conversion to Christianity and examines the various ways they interacted with both Dutch and English settlers as traders, soldiers, and victims of expansion and alcohol. Frazier has done extensive research and uses solid documentation. The work will be illustrated and have appeal for Indian scholars.

Review

"A stirring story, much more humanly complicated than any Cooper had to tell, or indeed than has been told by previous historian. . . . Individual anecdotes Frzier has turned up might be the subjects of whole novels."—Boston Globe
(Boston Globe)

"With extensive research in primary sources, Frazier's account deserves praise for its insights into the uncharted waters of eighteenth-century Indian history."—Choice
(Choice)

By Andrew Kercher on October 9, 2003
Format: Paperback
(Originally review Oct. 20, 2003)
The story of the Muh-he-kan-ne-ok, or the Mahicans (but better known as Mohicans), is a story of human triumph through hardship. Now in Wisconsin, this native American people migrated from their home in the Berkshires of Western Massachussetts via a brief stay in New York state. This is their story, how they lived when the European immigrant population began to grow and encroach on their lands, and how they openly embraced Christianity, in spite of how they were often treated by the third-generation of protestant immigrants. More fascinating is how the Stockbridge Indians, in spite of their treatment by the white settlers, have been very supportive of the American experience and have a long history of fighting patriotically in wars for the United States' cause from the very beginning.

After a brief ancient history of the amazing people called the Muh-he-kan-nuk, Frazier tells the story of the early 18th-century Chief Konkapot and his delegation to the Massachussetts Bay Colony requesting that a missionary be sent to teach them about the Christian religion. A teacher, Mr. Timothy Woodbridge, and the missionary John Sergeant, were commissioned to go and live among the Mahicans to teach them the Christian faith and English civilization. The story is fascinating, and Frazier reports very realistic and deals honestly with both the good and the bad that were both a result and a backlash of missionary endeavors. Most people know the popular history that the Rev. Jonathan Edwards spent part of his time as a missionary to the Stockbridge Indians before his fatal presidency at Princeton.

Another treasure to uncover regarding our Nations past. Frazier documents the early history of America's native people who were among the first to feel the effects of the European invasion. He retells their story in a narrative so clear and descriptive, you feel a part of it as a listener. As each person is introduced and followed through events, we must remember this is not fiction - this is our country's history.
