The used copy I ordered and received is in excellent condition. I have a fairly extensive collection of books on Native American culture s and am pleased to add this to my collection. The foreword was written by Chief Leon Shenandoah who was the Tadodaho, the spiritual leader of the Iroquois Confederacy until his passing recently. The Epilogue was written by John Mohawk, an Elder, and historian who has also moved further on his path. This book is the story of the Peacemaker, who was able to walk into tribal communities who had been battleing with with each other and convince them to make peace with each other. The concept that he proposed has worked for very effectively for several decades. Ben Franklin and other leaders.met with members of the tribes and incorperated many of the ideas into the Constitution of the United States.The model developed by the Peacemaker continues to this day, and should be revisited by the current leaders in this country.

good read

This book is essential for anyone who wants accurate information about the Iroquois. It tells the epic story of how five warring nations unified and formed a peace confederacy that stills exists today. This book addresses past events, but it also brings this story into the present in a very relevant way.

I was looking for a book that would give a clear background picture of the story of Deganawidah and the formation of the Five Nations Confederacy and this book covers it thoroughly.

This should be required reading for all students of American history. The Great Peacemaker and his contribution to not just American but Western Civilization is truly profound and this book does a great job of introducing us all to his myth and the Iroquois contribution.

Interesting
This needs to be in our history books. All we know about the Native Americans is the ones that the US put on the reservations. I am going to tell my friends about this book.
