Wilderness Empire by Allan Eckert


Wilderness EmpireVolume II in The Winning of America Series by Allan Eckert. Wilderness Empire focuses on the career of Sir William Johnson, chief Indian Agent for the British in North America and confidant of the Iroquois Nation as he attempts to counter the influence of the French who have whipped the Iroquois into a frenzy against English settlement of western New York and along the Ohio River.
In the continuing saga about the way the white man moved into Indian territory and took over, this narrative history tells the story of the French and Indian War and its effect upon the American frontier in the Mohawk Valley and other regions in New York, in the wilds of Pennsylvania and in the St. Lawrence Valley, following in particular the lives, careers and adventures of such characters as Sir William Johnson, who is adopted into the Mohawk tribe and becomes a sort of liaison between the Indians -- particularly the tribes of the Iroquois League -- and the whites in this turbulent period. The scope of the book runs from the early 1700's to 1760.
