THE WAR WHOOP OF THE WILY IROQUOIS

There's a folk tale feel to this intriguing story of a pioneer family and the sort of adventure with a happy ending that every pioneer-minded youngster imagines happening to him. The wily Iroquois didn't reckon with the wily Dexters and this is the story of how they won the siege, a story that invests its humor in the rigors and manoeuvering of pioneer life -- and gets returns in one dead Indian after another. Even the children had a part in it- and readers have a fine ""hearful of hardiness"" too. Richard Powers' wiry drawings are effective.
