(in honor of Thanksgiving, a post about the book that is probably the most traditionally American story that we've ever published)
I don't know if you've read this book?
If you haven't read this book, here is the quick-and-dirty of why it is an interesting American story. Journey into Mohawk Country is set in 1634, and also it is all true facts. It is about a guy from Manhattan who ventures off into the wilderness and establishes trading relationships with the New York state Native Americans!
(No Thanksgiving dinner is had. But there is a bear, which kind of makes up for it.)
