Extinction: Native Americans In The Age Of War

by Sean Hess

NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBES IN THE AGE OF WAR

The Relentless And Sinister WHITE ROBE

In the north woods the armies of the Iroquois are moving. Carrying a fearsome new weapon called the gun, they are systematically destroying their rivals. Lead by the sinister and mysterious White Robe, these armies will stop at nothing.

Amid this maelstrom of violence, a young boy watches as the Iroquois destroy his village. Ambushed while fleeing with the remnants of his family, he is wounded and left to die along a riverbank.

NATIVE AMERICAN WARGAMES

Rescued by the Erie warrior Crow Feather, the boy is adopted into a new tribe and new family. Despite this, the two watch helplessly as the forces of White Robe again gather and push their new world towards extinction. Refugees in a world that is falling apart, the warrior and the boy pit their war hammers against White Robe in a thrilling climax to avenge the deaths of their loved ones.

LOVE, LOSS, DEATH, AND REVENGE

Rich in historical detail, Extinction explores the universal themes of love, loss, death, revengeâ?¦and regret. Replete with action and heart-stopping battle scenes, the story’s relentless energy stays focused on the characters, bringing relevance to these Native American fighting games. Extinction is a kindred spirit to The Last of the Mohicans: timely yet timeless, a strong narrative that is stunningly visual.

About Extinction: Who Are These People? Why Have I Never Heard of Them?

I grew up in Ohio. I was lead to believe that state didn’t exist until Marietta was settled in its southeast corner. Native American Tribes? In Ohio? Are you kidding?

There were footnotes about Anthony Wayne, Tecumseh, and Fallen Timbersâ?¦but that wasn’t the real truth.

Conflict, Wargames, and Extinction

One day I discovered this set of old books called the Jesuit Relations in the local public library. The Relations told the amazing tales of the peoples that lived and fought and died before there ever was a Canada, a United States, or an Ohio.

The Native Americans and First Nations were playing fighting games 170 years before Anthony Wayne. The Erie, the Ouendat, the Neutral, the Tobacco, the Iroquois, and a host of other nations fought a series of desperate battles for resources that stretched from Quebec to Green Bay.

These peoples faced disease, war, and hardships that would make the hardiest American pioneer blush. Jesuit brothers from France lived with them, died with them, and recorded as much of their history as they could before the nations were wiped out.

It wasn’t the white men who killed these people off, even though smallpox imported from Europe did its share. It was other native peoples.

They especially fought and died in what later became Ohio.

And though I grew up in Ohio I never even knew they existed.

Extinction is an attempt to bring these people back to life. To let you know they lived, and loved, and suffered incredible heartbreak.

Please keep the memory of these people alive by reviewing this book. They aren’t extinct as long as you remember them.

“Once among the family of McGilligogs, a-gogs, with moms and dads and lads and lasses,

None of them wearing glasses,

The frog was given a juicy bone.

This is the life for me.

I’m no longer in a bog a bog

Sitting on a log, a log.’

He decided he’d be a dog, a dog

And was as happy as could be.”

From the Author:

I write children’s books to help brighten the lives of children and add a little dollop of wisdom in the process. Children need good habits, handy skills, and a good sense of humor to keep them moving forward in a happy, healthy, and productive manner. As a King Features syndicated author, I have been creating positive and inspirational messages, called “Happy Musings” for newspapers in the U.S. and Canada for many years. This has led to my writing and illustrating a great number of uplifting books for both adults and children. Along with my writing and illustrating, I have created collections of wallpaper for children baby bibs, t-shirts and a vast number of prints and original art for children’s rooms.

As you can see from the title of this book, it is the ninth in a line of books titled Happy Children’s Series.
