About this product
- DescriptionThe Woodland cultural areas of the eastern half of America has been the most important in shaping its history. This volume details the history, culture and conflicts of the 'Woodland' Indians, a name assigned to all the tribes living east of the Mississippi River between the Gulf of Mexico and James Bay, including the Siouans, Iroquians, and Algonkians. In at least three major battles between Indian and Euro-American military forces more soldiers were killed than at the battle of Little Bighorn in 1876, when George Custer lost his command. With the aid of numerous illustrations and photographs, including eight full page colour plates by Richard Hook, this title explores the history and culture of the American Woodland Indians.

Great book, will appeal to wargamers and other readers.
I'm a recent convert to the wargame Muskets & Tomahawks and wanted an Indian warband to play in it. Along with Wargame Factory's excellent Woodland Indians box, I picked up this book. I knew very little about the American Woodland Indians and found this book fantastic both as a reference for painting my miniatures and also in giving me an insight into this culture. The artwork is especially good, and the although the text is brief it sparks the imagination.
