A book by the author of The Traitor and the Spy and Gilbert Stuart, etc., is always a literary event; this biography of Sir William Johnson of New York, Mohawk chief (Warraghiyagey), English baronet, perhaps the ablest organizer and frontiersman in the whole history of Western expansion, fills a long-vacant space in American pre-Revolutionary annals. Johnson, born near Dublin in 1715, came to America in 1737 where his uncle Peter Warren, married into the powerful De Lancey family, established him in a trading-store in the Mohawk Valley, the land of the Iroquois, the Six Nations; here for the rest of his life he lived, making millions from furs, land, and his fair treatment of the Indians, whom he advised to their benefit and his profit. The Mohawks, who loved him and with cause trusted him, adopted him as Chief Warraghiyagey; for his services in organizing the Indians in King George's and the French & Indian Wars the British made him a baronet. A lover of women and the father of endless illegitimate children, he was adored by his mistresses; loving luxury, he built mansions, entertained thousands of guests and made gardens; had he not died in 1774, before the Revolution, he might as a King's man have changed the course of history. This documented lengthy account of a lusty, brilliant, amoral American and his background will appeal to students of American history, biography and pre-Revolutionary politics. (Kirkus Reviews)
