Journey into Mohawk Country.

His first graphic novel, Journey into Mohawk Country, was published in 2006. It uses as its sole text an English translation of the journal kept by the Dutch rer Harmen Meyndertsz van den Bogaert, who in 1634 journeyed from what is now Albany, New York 100 miles into the interior of the North American continent. O'Connor followed up Journey with his work on Ball Peen Hammer, the first graphic novel written by famed playwright Adam Rapp.

Harmen Meyndertsz van den Bogaert was only twenty three when he ventured into Mohawk territory in search of the answers to some pressing questions: where were all the beaver skins that the Indians should have been shipping down the river? Was the money that should have been going into the pockets of the Dutch going to the French instead? Despite freezing temperatures and a scarcity of trustworthy guides, maps, and sometimes even food, Harmen van den Bogaert and his friends set off for a journey through old New York in an attempt to revive the struggling fur trade. Nearly four centuries later, George O'Connor brings Harmen van den Bogaert's journal of his travels to life with simple and striking artwork.

Journey into Mohawk Country is based on a journal by H.M. Van den Bogaert with illustrations by George O'Connor.The diary served as a wonderful focal point for this graphic treatment. Written in the graphic novel style, the book follows a dutch trader who leaves Manhattan Island to explore Indian country in the winter of 1634. The young man meets with various Indian groups, trades tools and weapons for fur and food, and learns about the native cultures.

This well-researched book attempts to illustrate the adventure with authentic visuals that reflect the time period and cultures represented, while still making the work accessible to young people. The author takes come liberties in interpreting the journal's references to some issues. For instance, when the author refers to the lack of privacy in some villages, the illustrator shows the frustrations Bogaert probably felt about the lack of toilet facilities.

This book serves as an excellent model for anyone wishing to convert an historical text into an engaging graphic reading experience. Teachers should find it particular useful in stimulating interest in this time period.

As usual, First Second have succeeded in publishing another outstanding graphic work for all ages.

Purchased this book for the youth of our Bogart family. The original author is a distant relative who interacted with our direct ancestor in what is today Manhattan. This book has been an amazing gift to share with the kids, history can be boring for some, but not when it is in a relatable context. Many thanks to the modern author and illustrator, well done ????????

"Journey into Mohawk Country" is a splendid graphic novel. I enjoyed the stylized artwork as well as the way that the artist interpreted Bogaert's 17th Century report concerning his travels to the lands of the Iroquois Confederacy. There is a lot packed into each frame. I read this book six times within the course of one day, and each time that I read it, I noticed something that I had missed earlier. The artist is able to express a lot of activity and even conversations with suprisingly sparse writing to accompany it. All in all, an excellent book. I would be very interested if George O'Connor did even more colonial-era graphic novels.

Font very small and hard to read for kids.

This graphic novel was a great buy; I cannot believe the level of storytelling achieved using a simple journal as a skeleton. Anyone who enjoys this period in American history or historical graphic novels in general will probably be glad that they gave it a chance; I happen to enjoy both, so this book was a home run.

I had get this for history class, but honestly I would read this even if it wasnt for the class. It's a very nice book done in a comic strip style. Very pleasing to read. Quick too.
This comic book adaptation from an 18th century journal is ideal to get kids interested in the Mohawk tribe. Beautiful drawings.
