Pp (8),vii-xxiii,(1),1-327,(7). 8vo, black paper-covered boards, gilt lettering to spine. In the Studies in North AmericanIndian History series. "This study presents the first broad coverage of In dian experiences in the American Revolution rather than Indian participation as allies or enemies of 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 dj.
