The series is designed to appeal to students in grade 3 to 5, and each title covers the culture and history of the particular Nation. In this title, the author describes the traditional homeland of the Six Nations Iroquois, which included New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Ontario, and Quebec. A map helps students locate these homelands. Simple two-page chapters cover society (government), homes, food, clothing, crafts, family life, children, myths, war, contact with Europeans, and the Iroquois today.

This book also introduces students to an important Iroquois leader, the Peacemaker, who brought a message of peace to the warring Iroquois Nations. Throughout the text there are numerous full-colour photos as well as detailed illustrations by John Fadden, and Barbara Gray.
