by Warren King Moorehead. Softbound, 102 pages, 5" x 8". While written in the latter part of the 1890ís, this book is still an extremely useful source of inform-ation on the groups of native peoples that once inhabited what now comprises the State of OhioThe author starts his history in the mid 15th century, and ends up in the early 19th century with the defeat of the Indians during the War of 1812. Large sections on interesting topics such as the Erie Indians, who were exterminated by the Iroquois in 1656; the tribes who moved into the area some decades after the Eries disappeared; What became of these peoples during the conflicts between European powers on the frontier, and much more. A large section dealing solely with Tecumseh. The author also sheds light on such frontier characters as Simon Girty, Arthur St. Clair, Christian Frederick Post, Pontiac, Joseph Brant, Henry Bouquet, John Heckewelder, David Zeisberger, and many others. Well written and full of documentation, this book is easy reading, informative, and leaves the reader with a broader understanding of the historic tribes that once called the area south of Lake Erie their home.
