Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A Wampum Denied is a tour de force ... a mature piece of work, well-grounded in primary sources and a significant contribution to the field. This is the best work, by far, that I've read on the Northwest campaign in many years." Dr. Larry Nelson, director, Fort Meigs State Memorial, Ohio

“Antal’s work is a detailed account of the struggles to preserve what was then the Canadian west, southwest Ontario, and the border with Michigan. Colonists were few and the transportation network limited.” British Journal of Canadian Studies
