        Comments about Indian Nations of North America:

        Try this...Mahikan and Mohican are not the same as Mohegan~ and~ Mahican is neither, either of any of the two above...I want the American Public to know.

        ...Chapter 1 Northeast heads South...

        the 'split in format' is of interest..pp61-64, and 3

        Somewhat inaccurate, but all in all a gorgeous book...
