Harmen Meyndertsz van den Bogaert was only twenty three when he ventured into Mohawk territory in search of the answers to some pressing questions: where were all the beaver skins that the Indians should have been shipping down the river? Was the money that should have been going into the pockets of the Dutch going to the French instead? Despite freezing temperatures and a scarcity of trustworthy guides, maps, and sometimes even food, Harmen van den Bogaert and his friends set off for a journey through old New York in an attempt to revive the struggling fur trade. Nearly four centuries later, George O'Connor brings Harmen van den Bogaert's journal of his travels to life with simple and striking artwork.

Review: Journey Into Mohawk Country

Gebruikersrecensie  - Kaylee - Goodreads

The premise of this book: take an old journal and illustrate it. It's history turned into entertainment! The text of this book is a translation from a Dutch man's journal, but then the pictures explore some of the 'I wonder why...?" questions that pop up as you read the journal.

Review: Journey Into Mohawk Country

Gebruikersrecensie  - Kim - Goodreads

George O'Connor (LOVE HIM) read the diary of Dutchman going "upcountry" in the 1700s to trade with the Mohawk. Funny, respectful and a great peak into the moment when cultures meet. Volledige recensie lezen
