Books Info:

The Divided Ground free pdf From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "William Cooper's Town" comes a dramatic and illuminating portrait of white and Native American relations in the aftermath of the American Revolution.
"The Divided Ground" tells the story of two friends, a Mohawk Indian and the son of a colonial clergyman, whose relationship helped redefine North America. As one served American expansion by promoting Indian dispossession and religious conversion, and the other struggled to defend and strengthen Indian territories, the two friends became bitter enemies. Their battle over control of the Indian borderland, that divided ground between the British Empire and the nascent United States, would come to define nationhood in North America. Taylor tells a fascinating story of the far-reaching effects of the American Revolution and the struggle of American Indians to preserve a land of their own.
