Ambush continues Ghonkaba's story. He's still a young hothead who tries to get himself and his people into trouble. This book is set in the last years of the French and Indian War.

For a 2 month period I went through the first dozen of this series. I remember enjoying it in high school and they have collected dust on the shelf since. Every time I looked at them I thought I should read them again but not having an electronic version hampered my desire. I finally got back into the world of the Seneca tribe when the pilgrims first came to this country. Following multipal generations of this family is enjoyable. Held up pretty good.
