Genre: Non- fiction (history)

A History of Native American Land Rights in Upstate New York

Book Description:

A complex and troubled history defines the borders of upstate New York beyond the physical boundaries of its rivers and lakes. The United States and the state were often deceptive in their territory negotiations with the Iroquois Six Nations. Amidst the growing quest for more land among settlers and then fledgling Americans, the Indian nations attempted to maintain their autonomy. Yet state land continued to encroach the Six Nations. Local historian Cindy Amrhein takes a close and critical view of these transactions. Evidence of dubious deals, bribes, faulty surveys and coerced signatures may help explain why many of the Nations now feel they were cheated out of their territory.

Rian I think the author only wants to give out paperbacks, are you interested in this?

Cindy Amrhein (HistorySleuth) | 16 comments I could email Rian for the address if that's OK. My book is through a publisher so the ebook files go direct from them to Amazon and other outlets. I do have paperback copies they sent me. It will come autographed. :)

Maybe just edit that one line above to say "copy of this book" rather than "copy of this ebook" so people don't get confused what their getting?

Yes indeed, though I do have a bunch of paperback books lying around waiting to be read, and hence a diligent review may be somewhat delayed. :-)

Ok here, Cindy. Look forward to the book.

Well I can always hope you are so utterly enthralled with all the images in the book that you stick it closer to the top of the pile. :) I'll email you for your snail mail addy.

Cindy Amrhein (HistorySleuth) | 16 comments Ha! Well good then, Tony. I'm happy that there are people in the group with an interest in the subject. It seems a bit harder getting reviews for non-fiction.

A bit of an understatement, Cindy! After many dozens of books given away, reviews for my nonfiction work amount to fingers - on one hand. Shameless plug here...Tana would be more than justified in deleting this comment.

Cindy Amrhein (HistorySleuth) | 16 comments I made it to the post office today. (Can't drive myself just yet, I have tendinitis.)
