From Niagara Falls to Lake Champlain, the  warriors of the mighty Iroquois ruled supreme. Not even  the savagery of the French and Indian wars could  cool their fury or halt their power. But by 1770  the restless white men were warring once again.  Thayendanegea, the valiant Iroquois war chief,  allied his fierce tribes with the one white man the  Indians loved and trusted, Sir William Johnson. Once  more the frontier would erupt, pitting the  Indians' unvanquished spirit against the white setters'  relentless challenge. Allan W. Eckert's Narratives  of America are true sagas of the brave men and  courageous women who won our land. Every character  and event in this sweeping series is drawn from  actual history and woven into the vast and powerful  epic that was America's westward expansion. Allan  W. Eckert has made America's heritage an  authentic, exciting, and powerful reading  experience.… (mere)

The destruction of the Iroquois in the American Revolution is carefully laid out in this, the Fourth volume of Eckert's Narratives of America series. The relentless aggression of the American colonists has its final reward in the attacks on the tribal towns under General Sullivan in 1779. Though the people of the long house, whose organization is in some ways a model for the relations between states and the USA's federal government, were able to regather themselves in Canada, the destruction of their homeland was completed then. These works aren't fiction, and the journals of twenty-six participants are cited in the bibliography. There are also footnotes appended to each chapter for easier reference. Eckert was a major figure in the deconstruction of a major part of the "Myth of the American Frontier". ( )
