Excellent treatment of Lenape history

I am reading a 7-volume novelization of the life of Isaac Glikkikan, who died in the Gnaddehutten massacre. There are currently four volumes of the Conquest series, by James G. Landis, avaiolable on Amazon and directly from TGS International, a subsidiary of Christian Aid Ministries, which is an arm of the Mennonites.

The history is well told and the bibliography is comprehensive. It is a novelization, but the historical content is impressive. And, told as a narrative, it is a more fascinating read than all of the primary sources it is drawn from. But having read Weslager, Kraft, Grumet, et. al., I can say that it all appears to be correct.

The first two volumes cover history prior to the life of Glikkikan, so it is being retold to him by his grandfather. The third volume is also narrative, but it covers history from his own lifetime, as told toJohn Heckewelder. I am finding the series thus far quite enjoyable.
