The Wars of the Iroquois
A Study in Intertribal Trade Relations
George T. Hunt

"Peaceful efforts to reach a controlling interest in this [fur] trade failing, the Iroquois embarked on a career of conquest."Pennsylvania History

George T. Hunt's classic 1940 study of the Iroquois during the middle and late seventeenth century presents warfare as a result of depletion of natural resources in the Iroquois homeland and tribal efforts to assume the role of middlemen in the fur trade between the Indians to the west and the Europeans.

George T. Hunt was professor of history at Case Western Reserve University.
