Chiefs of Pennsylvania, is a factual account of the part played
by the American Indian in the history of the America's Eastern Frontier
and the contributions made by the many outstanding chiefs in shaping
our heritage. Originally published in 1927, this 569 page book is
considered by historians to be one of the classics on Eastern Frontier
history. From the formation of the Iroquois confederation in about
1570 through Cornplanter's death in 1836, over 30 life stories of
the "Chiefs" come to life as they step from the pages of this book.
As you read Indian Chiefs, you begin to know and understand the
motivation and personality of each chief. The final 100 pages detail
Indian events of Pennsylvania during the Revolutionary War complete
with a chronological table of leading events in the Indian history
of Pennsylvania from 1570-1836. Whether you are a scholar, re-enactor,
collector or genealogist, this book is sure to please. The first
book in the "Great Pennsylvania Frontier Series."
Indian Chiefs of Pennsylvania and Indian Wars
of Pennsylvania are considered the two best books ever written
about the Indian history of the Pennsylvania Frontier.
