American History Through Indian Eyes

Volume 1 of The Conquest Series.

In gripping narrative, this first volume of The Conquest Series tells the early history of the Lenape Indians and the coming of the white man to the Delaware River Valley. It shows why the Lenape claimed the lands they lived upon as their homeland. It explains Indian concepts of land use and details how the Lenape men came to be called women.

Intent upon dominating the Lenape and their lands, avaricious Whites cames from England, France, Holland, and Sweden, sailing across the Great Salt Sea in their inspiring white-winged canoes. Men from each arriving nation brought their rivalry and warring methods to the Lenape homeland.

This Indian saga reveals how great sachems of the Lenape—Eesanques, Mattahorn, Tamanend—tried to preserve their homeland amidst the wonders and terrors brought by these European invaders.

The account, as imaginatively told by master Lenape storytellers, stands in stark contrast to the biased tales of the Whites' "pen and ink" men who thought themselves civilized and believed the Indians to be only crude savages.

Read it all in Lenape Homeland.
