Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The Iroquois, or Haudenosaunee, live mostly in the northeast US and southeast Canada, and have done so for at least 1,000 years. This book begins with the creation of the Iroquois Confederacy and continues through to today's Mohawk ironworkers. Food is covered in detail, as is the structure (physical and social) of the longhouse, the clan system, the spirits, and thanksgiving. Contact with Europeans began well for the Iroquois, as they were interested in trading beaver furs for French and Dutch tools and supplies. By the end of the 17th century Europeans were fighting among themselves over the fur trade and the Iroquois were dragged into the war. Later, during the American Revolution, the Iroquois Confederacy split apart when some tribes sided with the British and others with the Americans. After the Revolution the Iroquois were punished by the American Army, which destroyed villages and confiscated their best farmland, forcing Iroquois onto reservations. This slim book is a good introduction to the Iroquois, but readers will need to do further research to get more than the basic facts. The many illustrations are mostly old engravings with some photographs of art and modern Iroquois. Back matter includes an index, a short glossary, and a timeline. From the "We the People" series. 2006, Compass Point Books, Ages 7 to 12.
