• At the conclusion of the French and Indian War, the triumphant British took possession of a vast area west of the Appalachians in the Great Lakes region that was replete not only with a lucrative fur trade and endless possibilities for colonization but also hostile Indians with lingering loyalties to their former French allies. British strict regulation of the fur trade and perceived arrogance further fueled their resentment, which exploded in 1763 in the violent, sometimes horrifying tribal reaction known as Pontiac’s Uprising.
  • A lavishly illustrated volume about the Adirondacks during the first three centuries after European arrival: the place, the Native American peoples there and the name, drawing on first -hand written sources and maps of the time.
  • In the 16th century, the converts to the new Calvinist religion in the southern Netherlands fought on the losing side in the revolution against Spain and the Catholic Church. Unsuccessful in their battle to win the right to worship as they wished in their homeland, where they were treated as criminals, they wandered stateless for decades and finally crossed the Atlantic in the company of Dutch entrepreneurs to populate important areas of the New World. These refugees from the southern provinces, whose new neighbors were Dutch, gradually forgot that they were not ethnically Dutch but Walloon and Flemish, from a part of the world that is now known as Belgium. This book is an effort to retell their frequently distorted and even suppressed story.
  • In her third book on the Mohicans, Shirley Dunn surveys their important role in the history of colonial New York: their interactions with Europeans, their relations with other powerful tribes including the Mohawks and Esopus Indians, and their participation in military events.
