A solid and well-researched study of the Iroquois, whcih reveals the complexity and vibrance of their history and culture. The perspective is anthropological with great attention to the daily life of the Iroquois over the last millennium as disclosed by careful and meticulous observations of historic places, texts and accounts. The goal is ambitious but largely succeeds demonstrating a growing body of research and acedemic study in the field.

Some of the claims are questionable. Overall a mediocre account. I'd have to research some of the authors claims. Not a scholarly work.

The academic style gets in the way for a non-academic reader like myself, but the information is fascinating nonetheless.

An accessible, excellent history of the development of the Owasco peoples into the Six Nations.

Far from being a dry scholarly text. Bursting with documented historical evidence, but still fascinating.
