"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.
