Walter Winward's Music of a Distant Drum tells the story of a forgotten people, the Haudenosaunee, and their struggle for survival. In the early 1800s, the Haudenosaunee were a powerful nation with a thriving culture. But when the Europeans arrived, they destroyed their way of life and forced the Haudenosaunee into exile.

Walter Winward tells the story of the Haudenosaunee through the music they created. He interviews songwriters, historians, and other experts to find out about the music and the people who created it. Music of a Distant Drum is a fascinating look at a forgotten culture and the music that kept them alive.; 8vo; FSA.
