Synopsis

The Iroquois Trail Dickon among the Onondagas and Senecas by M. Harrington

A Story of American Indian Life in Colonial Times This exciting adventure story incorporates [Harrington's] vast knowledge of Indian life, lore, and crafts. --New Jersey Education Association Review Thousands of schoolchildren have read the adventures of Dickon, the English boy who was rescued from a shipwreck by the Lenape Indians, told in The Indians of New Jersey by M. R. Harrington. Now they and others can follow Dickon's further adventures in The Iroquois Trail, now reissued by Rutgers University Press. As Dickon and his companions travel the Iroquois Trail in search of his Lenape brother, Little-Bear, they learn the ways of Onondagas, Senecas, Mohawks, Oneidas, and Cayugas. Dickon tells his own story, describing the day-to-day activities in the villages along the trail--their ways of making clothing, weapons, household articles, and ornaments, and how they hunt, cook, travel, and worship. He meets Hiawatha, Deganawide, Jigonsasay, and other Indian leaders. His tale is accompanied by line drawings that vividly portray the art of making baskets, moccasins, bows and arrows, clothing, and other everyday articles. These illustrations were done by Don Perceval, a renowned artist and specialist on Indians. The late M. R. Harrington was for many years the curator of the Southwest Museum in Los Angeles. He is the author of The Indians of New Jersey: Dickon Among the Lenape, also available from Rutgers University Press.
