History of Brule's Discoveries & Explorations

20.00

We know what 18th century life was like on the Eastern Frontier, this book now gives us rare glimpses into the fascinating early pre-contact Indian history of the East, 150 years before the start of the F & I War. Do you know about the Erie Indian tribe (or the Cat nations), formidable adversaries of the Iroquois who suddenly disappeared from history? It was Brule’s restless spirit and ardent love of adventure that prompted him to request permission from Champlain to explore interior New York and Pennsylvania. No white man had preceded him into that region and the date of that particular journey was 1615—a little over eight years after the settlement of Jamestown and six years after the first white man ascended the Hudson. Read about the tobacco farmers to the west of the Iroquois called the Neutral Nation. Learn the basis for the Iroquois hatred of the French. Sail down the Susquehanna River past the “palisaded forts” of the Susqhehannocks into the Chesapeake Bay through Brule’s journal in the early 1600’s and record his time here in North America until his untimely death at the hands of the Huron who killed and ate him. This is a book unlike any other you will ever read about this early 17th century time period because there are no others. We need to have a sense about the pre-contact period in order to understand the roots of the F & I War in North America and this is the only real book to give us this understanding. The principal reason why Brule’s visits, to various unexplored regions of the East have found so few historians referring to him are simply because of the lack of early information available. Butterfield simply spent the time collecting the available data and published it. Come back in time and rediscover the early 17th century.
