Hi,

I'm looking for a particular book,  but would be interested in any book that deals with the history /anthropology of early native american culture of Ohio and the near by states.  The book I am looking for is The Ohio Gateway, by D.E. Crouse.  It was published in 1938 by Charles Scribner's Sons, NY  Anyone else out there interested in this topic?

Tracy

A lot has changed about the knowledge of the Ohio area native americans since 1938.  I would recommend trying to find a more recent book.  I am interested in this topic, but I am only interested in reading a more recent book.  I could recommend a couple of books on the Iroquois.

Here are a couple of books that fit into this topic:

  • O'Donnell, James H., III. Ohio's First Peoples. Athens: Ohio University Press, 2004.
  • Ricky, Donald B., ed. Encyclopedia of Ohio Indians. St. Clair Shores, MI: Somerset Publishers, Inc., 1998.
  • Bond, Beverley W., Jr. The Foundations of Ohio. Columbus, OH: Ohio State Archaeological and Historical Society, 1941.

I tend to be more interested in the later history of that region when it comes to Native Americans fighting to retain their land in the Ohio Valley.

BTW, I found the citations for the above books by browsing the categories here: http://www.ohiohistorycentral.org/subcategory.php?c=H&s=GROUP

O'Donnell, James H., III. Ohio's First Peoples. Athens: Ohio University Press, 2004.

Dr. O'Donnell was one of my history professors in college! (I was a history major.) A great guy, and very knowledgable about Native American/Ohio history.
