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.
George O'Connor is the author of several picture books, including the "New York Times" bestseller "Kapow!", "Kersplash", and "Sally and the Some-thing". His debut graphic novel, "Journey into Mohawk Country", was published by First Second, as was Adam Rapp's "Ball Peen Hammer", which O'Connor illustrated. His series "The Olympians" includes such titles as "Poseidon", "Hera", "Athena", "Hades", and "Zeus".
