Critic Reviews

"An outstanding survey of this captivating episode of America's heritage." ( American Archaeology)
"Accessible and plainspoken account of the Iroquois and their homeland... book's strength lies in its use of enthnohistory." ( New York History)
"Essential reading not only for scholars... but also anyone interested in understanding contemporary Iroquois world view and politics." ( Ontario Archaeology)

Informative

Informative and full of facts. Narrator was dry and showed no emotion whatsoever. He read very fast and I had to slow down the speed so I could absorb the material. This is an EXCELLENT book and it's worth listening if you can get past the narrator.
