Captured by Mohawks

In the mid 1600s, Pierre-Esprit Radisson, the French fur trader and explorer (and for whom the Radisson hotels were named after), was hunting fowl near his Trois-Rivières home in Quebec, when several of his hunting group were killed by Mohawks, and himself was later captured by the Iroquois. He wrote detailed accounts of his travels that were published. These narratives were also adapted in novel form in the book Captured by the Mohawks, by Sterling North. Here is his description of his encounter with the Iroquois, written in Centennial Gregg by yours truly.
