I am really interested in the history of the struggles of both the Native American and First Nations of North America.
The Iroquis were one of the fiercest but where there families were concerned, we all need to take a leaf out of their book!
This is a lovely story and the facts in it are really accurate.
Just for the record, the Native Tribes may have killed a few thousand 'Whites' but it is a drop in the ocean compared to the milions of them who were persecuted, and perished at their hands.

Do try and read 'The Inconvenient Indian' by Thomas King and The Orenda by Joseph Boyden

5.0 out of 5 stars An incredible story 14 Oct. 2005
By Patricia Bloom - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am not one who cares for "romance" but when someone suggested that books by Kate Cameron were in the genre of "historical romance" I still didn't think there would be much of a difference. I hung on to the book for several years and then, one hurricane week, without electricity and no work, I lit a candle and sat down to read ORENDA. It has become one of my favorite books. Steeped in history, with a tale so compelling that I almost couldn't bear to finish it, I rushed out and bought all the other Kate Cameron (a.k.a. Beverly McGlamry) books I could find. She is a writer of inestimable talent. Her tale, while fictional, is woven within the tight constraints of factual history, so there are moments of gruesome reality. But this is juxtapositioned against a story of beauty, family, land and loss. You needn't be particularly interested in the saga of the Iroquois Nation (on which this book is based) but I promise that you will be drawn in as easily as I was, to a world I never knew about. This is a story beautifully told, of great moments and tragic ones, all exquisitely written with the true hand of a master historian.
