CALLOWAY, Colin G. The American Revolution in Indian Country : Crisis and Diversity in Native American Communities. Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, (1995). First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-xxiii,(1),1-327,(7). 8vo, black paper covered spine with black paper covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. A volume in the Cambridge Studies in North American Indian history series. "This study presents the first broad coverage of Indian experiences in the American Revolution rather than Indian participation as allies or enemiesof contending parties. Colin Calloway focuses on eight Indian communities as he explores how the Revolution often translated into war among Indians and their own struggles for independence. Drawing on British, American, Canadian and Spanish records, Calloway shows how Native Americans pursued different strategies, endured a variety of experiences, but were bequeathed a common legacy as a result of the Revolution." - from the dustjacket.
