Very interesting perspective of life with the Native American tribes in New York State in the late 1700's. This book is not for the squeamish. The readers change from chapter to chapter and it gets a little distracting, but I still enjoyed the book.

Love the history!! Beautifully detailed. Can't help but wonder how and when information was found for documentation.

Three stars simply for the never ending bloody, detailed, gruesomeness of this book. If one has the stomach for such detailed descriptions, then 5 Stars! It's interesting, bubbling over with little known historical facts, from both Indian & Non-Indian, viewpoint, from those who lived it. So I'm not sorry I listened to this book. I didn't waste my time, it was well read, with only 2 rough Chapters. That said, it will still be a long time before I get the images described, in this book, out of my brain. But perhaps, that was the reason of its being published. People need to know what Humans are capable of. Even those who are calling others "Savages".
