The history of the Five Indian nations of Canada, which are the barrier between the English and French in that part of the world. With particular accounts of their religion, manners, customs, laws, and government; their several battles and treaties with the European nations; their wars with the other Indians; and a true account of the present state of our trade with them. In which are shewn, the great advantage of their trade and alliance to the British nation; and the intrigues and attempts of the French to engage them from us; a subject nearly concerning all our American plantations, and highly meriting the consideration of the British nation. By the Honourable Cadwallader Colden ... To which are added, accounts of the several other nations of Indians in North-America, their numbers, strength, &c. and the treaties which have been lately made with them.
