The Fox Wars: The Mesquakie Challenge to New France

The Fox Wars: The Mesquakie Challenge to New France Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the saga of the Fox (or Mesquakie) Indians' struggle to maintain their identity in the face of colonial New France during the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.

The Foxes occupied central Wisconsin, where for a long time they had warred with the Sioux and, more recently, had opposed the extension of the French firearm-and-fur trade with their western enemies. Caught between the Sioux anvil and the French hammer, the Foxes enlisted other tribes' support and maintained their independence until the late 1720s. Then the French treacherously offered them peace before launching a campaign of annihilation against them. The Foxes resisted valiantly, but finally were overwhelmed and took sanctuary among the Sac Indians, with whom they are closely associated to this day.

Book News Annotation:

Limns the history of the Mesquakie Indians (called the Foxes) from the late precontact period through the mid-1700s, centering on their struggles against the colonial government of New France. Also examines their history of war with the Sioux, their opposition to the French fur-and-firearm trade with other tribes, and their eventual alliance with the Sac Indians.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [259]-269) and index.
