9780803268821: The Mohicans of Stockbridge (Bison Book)

Few American Indian tribal names are as well recognized as that of the Mohicans. Yet little is actually known about the people themselves, despite legendary images fixed by James Fenimore Cooper. Now we have the first thoroughly researched and documented study of the Stockbridge, Massachusetts, Mohicans, and it reveals a story fully as interesting as any fiction and more meaningful.

About the Author:

Patrick Frazier has been employed by the Library of Congress since 1959, most recently as a reference specialist on North American Indians. His publications include Portrait Index of North American Indians in Published Collections and a forthcoming guide to North American Indian collections in the Library of Congress.

Review:

"A stirring story, much more humanly complicated than any Cooper had to tell, or indeed than has been told by previous historian. . . . Individual anecdotes Frzier has turned up might be the subjects of whole novels."—Boston Globe (Boston Globe)

"With extensive research in primary sources, Frazier's account deserves praise for its insights into the uncharted waters of eighteenth-century Indian history."—Choice (Choice)

"Immortalized by James Fenimore Cooper in The Last of the Mohicans, the Mohicans Indians originated in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Frazier, a specialist in Native American studies with the Library of Congress, presents a detailed, scholarly account of these Indians; he hopes to make his readers aware of the contributions they made to American history. He covers the Mohicans' conversion to Christianity and the ramifications this had for them. He examines the various ways they interacted with the settlers, both Dutch and New Englanders, in trading, and as soldiers and victims of expansion and alcohol. Frazier has done extensive research and uses solid documentation."—Library Journal (Library Journal)

"The calm suggestiveness of The Mohicans of Stockbridge makes it a model for future studies of native peoples."—Times Literary Supplement (Times Literary Supplement)
