"Max Mintz's fascinating account is packed with colorful details. A lively narrative that succinctly traces the twists and turns of the wilderness warfare that raged on the northwestern frontier of the Confederation. A wonderful, fast paced read about an important dimension of the revolutionary struggle that has finally received the attention it deserves."-Richard Buel Jr., Wesleyan University "In an unsparing and meticulously researched narrative, Mintz confronts the hard facts of a seamy side of the Revolution, a warfare in which both sides aimed at desolation and succeeded."-Edmund S. Morgan, Yale University "Mintz's extensive knowledge of Revolutionary War figures and his gift to make them live illuminates descriptions of Gen. John Sullivan, Mohawk Joseph Brant, and others."-"Library Journal", "Packed with juicy nuggets of detail and clearly the result of prodigious research in primary sources."-"William and Mary Quarterly", "Max Mintz, in sparkling prose, reminds us that war on the frontier of Revolutionary America was vitally important and that the Iroquois side of the story demands further investigation."-Don Higginbotham, University of North Carolina
