    One thought on “James Smith, Four Years a Mohawk”

    1. A good book to get lost inI greatly enjoyed this book. I loved reading about Indians Celebrations and dances. Historical fiction is one of my favorite genres and Sharon Solomon has done a great job at getting into the fictive dream and staying there. She is also good with point of view and giving each character their own “voice”. I especially recommend it for those tweens studying this time period, 1770’s and The French and Indian War. They will eat it up!!
