Thousands of schoolchildren have read the adventures of Dickon, the English boy who was rescued from a shipwreck by the Lenape Indians, told in The Indians of New Jersey by M. R. Harrington. Now they and others can follow Dickon's further adventures in The Iroquois Trail, now reissued by Rutgers University Press.
As Dickon and his companions travel the Iroquois Trail in search of his Lenape brother, Little-Bear, they learn the ways of the Onondagas, Senecas, Mohawks, Oneidas, and Cayugas. Dickon tells his own story, describing the day-to-day activities in the villages along the trailÐÐtheir ways of making clothing, weapons, household articles, and ornaments, and how they hunt, cook, travel, and worship. He meets Hiawatha, Deganawide, Jigonsasay, and other Indian leaders. His tale is accompanied by line drawings that vividly portray the art of making baskets, moccasins, bows and arrows, clothing, and other everday articles. These illustrations are done by Don Perceval, a renowned artist and specialist on Indians.
