Journey into Mohawk Country

by Harmen Meyndertsz Van den Bogaert and George O’Connor. New York, NY: First Second, 2006

Through words of Harmen Meyndertsz Van den Bogaert (as found in his journal) and George O’Connor’s art, we read about and experience the winter of 1634 and Bogaert's exploits as he travels with a small group from the tip of Manhattan Island to Iroquois country where they hope to establish trade routes and rights to strengthen the faltering Dutch trade.

It addresses social studies themes such as: historical events; continuity and change among and between cultures; national and community institutions; the powers and challenges of governance; citizenship and civic ideals and practices; and global connections.
