Journey into Mohawk Country

Artist George O’Connor has a keen interest in history, he writes in the introduction to this graphic novel. For this work, he took a manuscript written in 1634 by Dutch trader H.M. Van den Bogaert and set it to images.

It’s not a masterpiece or either art or literature. But it is an interesting snapshot of what life was like on the frontier a century and a half before the Revolution that history buffs will likely find engaging.
