The Wilderness War
IV of The Winning of America (Narratives of America) Series.
Occurring in 1779, this narrative history chronicles the day-by
day, step-by-step march of the United States Army under Major General
John Sullivan to destroy the Iroquois Indians, as ordered by Commander-in-Chief
George Washington. Based on the numerous diaries, letters and official
reports by the actual members of the expedition, it is a compelling
account of the first major war waged by the new American government
against the Indians and takes place primarily in eastern Pennsylvania
and much of New York State. Originally published in 1978 by Little,
Brown & Co., Boston, MA. and in paperback in 1979 by Bantam,
NYC. Having gone out of print after 16 years in hardcover and 19
years in paperback, this volume and the other five volumes in The
Winning of America (Narratives of America) are presently being
reprinted by The Jesse Stuart Foundation, Ashland, Kentucky.
