Product Description

Review

"The author examines tribal groups broken down by language, intertribal relationships, the Indians' religion and their material culture in terms of clothing, equipment and weaponry. In addition, some notable personalities are profiled ... this 48-page book is chock full of interesting information complemented by photographic re-creations, illustrations, maps and full-color plates created by Jonathan Smith." -"Toy Soldier & Model Figure "(August 2011)

This the downside to ordering online I guess. Had I seen this in a shop I would not have bought it. I can't comment on the accuracy of the information as I know very little about the subject ,hence my purchase. However I was hoping for information regarding the appearance of the tribes involved in the War of 1812. Sadly there is very little here. The illustrations are well rendered but for my purposes, pretty useless. We have a whole page of female dress and another of outfits worn for rituals - Ok if you are interested in that kind of thing but this is the Osprey Men At Arms series rather than a series of ethnographic studies - I was expecting well.. Men At Arms !

Historical Overview of Great Lakes Native American Tribes! 26 May 2011
By Michael OConnor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Michael Johnson, a noted historian on Native American peoples, has authored at least four Osprey 'Men-at-Arms' titles on Native American tribes. NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN TRIBES OF THE GREAT LAKES focuses on those 15 tribes/nations who lived in the western Great Lakes area and the Midwest between the Mississippi and Ohio valleys.

Men-at-Arms #467 offers a concise but informative overview of the Huron, Ojibwa, Ottawa, Menominee, Winnebago, Sauk, Kickapoo, Miami, Shawnee and other tribes that resided in the midwest. Johnson describes the Native American way of life prior to European contact and the arrival and impact of the Europeans before relating the culture and history of the different tribes. He then summarizes the various 'Wars with the White Man' including the French and Indian War, Pontiac's Revolt, the Revolutionary War, War of 1812, Black Hawk War, etc. and provides brief bios of notable Native American leaders. A concluding chapter describes 'The Great Lakes Nations since 1850.'

Since NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN TRIBES OF THE GREAT LAKES tops out at 48 pages, no one can expect Men-at-Arms #467 to be definitive or exhaustive. Rather it is a nicely-written, well-illustrated summary of the Native American culture and experience in middle America. For someone with little knowledge of Native American tribes, Johnson's book is an excellent introduction to the subject. The vintage photographs, maps and illustrations help bring the subject to life as do the excellent color artwork supplied by Jonathan Smith.

Falling into that aforementioned "with little knowledge" category, I greatly enjoy Johnson's book. It was interesting, informative and whetted my appetite for more. Highly recommended.
