Your Fyre Shall Burn No More, Iroquois Policy toward New France and Its Native Allies to 1701 is a unique interpretation of the Six Nations Iroquois Confederacy's involvement in the so-called Beaver Wars. The standard historical interpretation states that the Iroquois were motivated by economic gain when they engaged the French and their Native allies in warfare during the seventeenth-century. This warfare was solely directed at attempting to gain control of the fur trade away from the French. Historians have maintained this argument for generations. Brandao challenges this accepted thesis by claiming that this interpretation is faulty and that the Iroquois waged war in order to live not for furs. To prove his claim, the author has engaged in extensive and painstaking research that documents the number of battles the Iroquois fought, the number of loses the Iroquois suffered due to epidemics and hostilities, and population estimates throughout the period under study. The author builds his argument through the overwhelming statistical evidence that is reproduced in six appendices in the second half of the text. In compiling the evidence from primary sources, the author reexamines Iroquois cultural motivation to find that the Iroquois engaged in warfare to exact revenge, protect their lands and territories, and to capture hostages that would serve as adoptive sons and daughters for grieving families. The Iroquois sought to maintain their populations, thinned by disease and war, by adopting captured prisoners and incorporating them into specific families and clans. Rather than fighting the French and its allies solely over control of the fur trade, the Iroquois remained true to their cultural and political values. This is a limited study that offers a concise argument and backs it with overwhelming statistical evidence. Unfortunately, the second half of the book containing the charts and tables is not paginated. Anyone interested in the study of the fur trade, 17th century New France, and Iroquois history will find this to be a valuable resource.
