あらすじ・解説

In this narrative history of the Mohawk River Valley and surrounding region from 1713 to 1794, Professor Richard Berleth charts the passage of the valley from a fast-growing agrarian region streaming with colonial traffic to a war-ravaged wasteland. The valley's diverse cultural mix of Iroquois Indians, Palatine Germans, Scots-Irish, Dutch, English, and Highland Scots played as much of a role as its unique geography in the cataclysmic events of the 1700s - the French and Indian Wars and the battles of the American Revolution. 

Patriots eventually wrenched the valley from British interests and the Iroquois nations, but at fearsome cost. When the fighting was over, the valley lay in ruins and as much as two-thirds of its population lay dead or had been displaced. But by not holding this vital inland waterway - the gateway to the West, "the river between the mountains" - America might have lost the Revolution, as well as much or all of the then-poorly-defined province of New York.

excellent

View of an obscure and often overlooked area of American History. As a people we often pass towns throughout America wholly devoid of knowledge collectively as to the experiences and origins of our fellow forefathers. This book does an excellent job of remedying this problem.

Spectacular telling of rarely told histories

So much history told here that escapes much of popular teachings. Stories of the earliest interactions of both parallel and divergent histories of the colonists and Native Americans. The brutalities that existed and lives lost as Europeans settled what was the homes of great peoples.

Very well researched and compelling

VERY riveting! As a historian myself (academically – and not this field however) by saying to hear allthe incidental" footnotes". I do wish there was attached PDF them as well as a couple of maps. To that point, I was fascinated to learn the extent to which Benedict Arnold delayed the British fleet on Lake Champlain until 1777great history of Fort Stanwyck

Indian studies. 101

I wanted a story not a college course. I wasn't sure if I should be writing stuff down for a quiz later.

Fascinating nugget of American History

We recently drove cross country, finishing our travels through upstate New York. Having gone to college in Syracuse I was hoping to find an interesting read this summer. The narrator and author did not disappoint. I found new perspective from familiar place names and new appreciation for the lives of our forebears.

Well researched and interesting

It was hard in this format to track all of the characters. This is especially true for foreign names. Nevertheless I enjoyed it.
