Klappentext

Excerpt from The History of the Five Indian Nations of Canada, Vol. 1 of 2: Which Are Dependent on the Province of New York, and Are a Barrier Between the English and the French in That Part of the World This brings us to The History of the Five Indian Nations. Mr. Shea says it was writ ten to lay more completely before the pub lie the importance of the Five Nations - or Iroquois - to the Colony of New York, as a barrier against the French and a means of controlling the West. There is no doubt that the book was written with a political motive, and it may have been necessary to teach the King and Council, Lords of Trade and other ruling powers, the real position, inuence and power of the Iroquois Confed cracy. But Golden was too well informed a man not to perceive that the day would come when every scrap of authentic information in regard to the Indians would be valuable. He had access to sources of information by reason of his official position not usually open to writers, of which he made remarkable use.
