Synopsis

'McConnell shows admirable sensitivity to the plight of the Ohio refugees but not only as they were victims of circumstance. He portrays their changing but constant struggles to preserve a boundary between themselves and advancing Europeans...McConnell eschews romanticism. This is history as it happened' - "Journal of American History". 'An excellent account of Indian diplomacy in the late Colonial period' - "Choice". 'McConnell makes a significant contribution to ethnohistory by chronicling with unprecedented precision the history of frontier interactions in the Upper Ohio Valley' - "Ethnohistory".'A well-written, judicious and thoughtful study supplying an essential perspective to our understanding of the colonial period ...obligatory reading for all interested in the early history of Ohio and Pennsylvania' - "Ohio History". 'Solid history, recommended to all who wish to learn more about Ohio's Indian heritage' - "Northwest Ohio Quarterly". The Ohio Country in the eighteenth century was a zone of international strife, and the Delawares, Shawnees, Iroquois, and other natives who had taken refuge there were caught between the territorial ambitions of the French and British.

"A Country Between" is unique in assuming the perspective of the Indians who struggled to maintain their autonomy in a geographical tinderbox. Michael N. McConnell is an associate professor of history at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
