Iroquois diplomacy on the early American frontier by Timothy J Shannon( file )

Occupying territory between Canada and New York, the Six Nations of the Iroquois League held a strategic position near French, Dutch, and English interests.

This compelling narrative explores the politically shrewd - sometimes treacherous - tactics the Iroquois used to withstand the juggernaut of colonization.--

"I share the country's admiration for the bravery of Captain Phillips and his selfless concern for his crew. His courage is a model for all Americans."--President Barack Obama.

That all changed when armed Somali pirates boarded the ship. The pirates didn't expect the crew to fight back, nor did they expect Captain Phillips to offer himself as a hostage in exchange for the safety of his crew. Thus began the tense five-day standoff, which ended in a daring high-seas rescue when U.S. Navy SEALs opened fire and picked off three of the captors
