Algonquin Eagle Song
An Infomral Honor Roll
of Great Algonquins

Did you know that the chef who invented the potato chip, the baseball player who invented the "slider," and the first president of the NFL were all Algonquin "Indians"? Or that actress Connie Stevens, songwriters Buffy Ste. Marie, Shania Twain and Bill Miller are all Algonquin "cousins" as well? This groundbreaking book by Evan Pritchard contains over 200 fascinating biographies and stories about Native Americans that may have already touched your life, from Mrs. Woodrow Wilson (Americas 28th and a half President) to Joe Montana. If you are interested in any of the 84 Algonquin nations, this book will offer startling new insights. Then the next time someone asks, "What ever happened to the Algonquin Indians?" you can lend them this book --- but like Manahattan, you might not get it back!
