Summary
  • The Three Faces of Molly Brant features on the cover a reproduction of the stamp issued in her honor, an image that portrays three aspects of her character. As a Mohawk matriarch living in up-state New York during the American Revolutionary War, Molly Brant became one of the most important of the United Empire Loyalists as she persuaded five of the Six Nations to remain loyal to Britain and immigrate to Canada, eventually settling in Kingston, Ontario. As the consort of Sir William Johnson, one of the most influential landowners in the Thirteen Colonies, she was an able hostess entertaining a constant stream of guests from the British gentility along with sachems from various Native tribes
  • And despite her full political and complex social life, she was the mother of nine children and guardian to four others, responsible for their schooling and general well-being. The Three Faces of Molly Brant is the first full-scale biography of one of North America's "first" women
