"An extraordinarily fine book about the entire time range of Native American presence in Vermont . . . Those interested in studying Northeastern Indians (past and present) and the Vermont Abenaki themselves should be delighted with this publication." —American Indian Culture and Research Journal

Reviews / Endorsements

“Utilizing archaeological site reports, unpublished manuscripts, and previous scholarly publications, Haviland and Power present an informative sociohistorical analysis of the Native American story in northern New England . . . This work serves to challenge and correct many misconceptions.”—Choice

“Although it is a book whose scholarship will stand up, it is written for the general reader . . . The result is a story—clear, informative, and moving easily— . . . a pleasant book which I have read with relish.”—Gordon M. Day, Vermont History

“A refreshing synthesis by competent scholars . . . An excellent starting point for serious and intelligent nonprofessionals, and a bench mark against which future progress will be measured.”—Dean R. Snow, Ethnohistory
