The Mohicans of Stockbridge

Synopsis

Few American Indian tribal names are as well recognized as that of the Mohicans. Yet despite the legendary images fixed by James Fenimore Cooper, little is known on the actual people. The Mohicans of Stockbridge, the first thoroughly researched and documented study of the Mohicans of Stockbridge, Massachusetts, reveals a history fully as interesting as any fiction.

A major contribution to ethnohistory and to the history of the colonial Northeast.... Frazier has given them such a full colonial and Indian context that they become a revealing microcosm of all the important trends in Indian-white relations in early America. In situating them in a colonial panorama from Canada to the Carolinas, he ensures that no one will mistake this for an antiquarian exercise, particularly since his ethnohistorical touch is so sensitive and his historical grasp so strong.
