Product Details


“Fascinating and alluring in the way the best writing on history can be.”–The Observer

“Powerful and useful. . . .Demos has achieved the kind of balancing act that historians constantly strive for but seldom achieve.”–New Republic 

“This thought-provoking study explores the multiple communities to which apparently simple people belonged and how their domestic lives were overtaken by political events. Fascinating, lively, and especially timely to an age struggling to understand the implications of its own cross-cultural encounters.”–Kirkus

“A masterpiece…recovering for us the poignant story of lives and families shattered and then painfully knitted together again in the complex cultural encounters between English, French, and Mohawk peoples in eighteenth-century America. There is nothing quite like it in our literature. It is a stunning achievement that should change forever the way we write and tell stories about the American past.”–William Cronon
