Osprey Men-at-Arms 428 : Indian Tribes of the New England Frontier
This book offers a detailed introduction to the tribes of the New England region who became the first native American peoples affected by contact with the French and English colonists. By 1700 several tribes had already been virtually destroyed, and many others were soon reduced and driven from their lands by disease, war or treachery. The tribes were also drawn into the savage frontier wars between the French and the British. The final defeat of French Canada and the subsequent unchecked expansion of the British colonies resulted in the virtual extinction of the region's Indian culture, which is only now being revived by small descendant communities. Text by Michael G Johnson with illustrations by Jonathan Smith.
