Published on the occasion of the 200th anniversary of Molly Brant's death, the book features on the cover a reproduction of the stamp issued in her honor, an image that portrays her with three faces, each representing one aspect of her character. As a Mohawk matriarch living in Up-State New York during the Revolutionary War, Molly Brant became one of the most important of the United Empire Loyalists as she persuaded five of the Six Nations to remain loyal to Britain and immigrate to Canada. As the consort of Sir William Johnson, one of the most influential land-owners in the Thirteen Colonies, she was an able hostess entertaining a constant stream of guests from the British gentility along with sachems from various Native tribes. And despite her full political and complex social life, she was the mother of nine children and guardian to four others, responsible for their schooling and general well-being.Featuring over 30 rare and archival photographs, this book is the first full-scale biography of one of North America's first women.
