English translation of the account of a journey undertaken in September of 1790 by Count Paolo Andreani of Milan as he travelled through Iroquoian lands along the Hudson and Mohawk Rivers. He recounts his observations of the lifestyle of the Iroquois, Shakers, and German, Dutch, and English New Yorkers during this trip. He pays particular attention to the Oneida and Onondaga Nations and describes an Oneida lacrosse game and the lacrosse sticks used. Editors Cesare Marino and Karim Tiro have provided readers with a fascinating account of an Italian traveller to New York after the American Revolution. Linguistic notes for the Iroquoian languages are provided by Roy Wright.
