In Search of New England’s Native Past
Ed. by Michael K. Foster and William Cowan. 344 pgs. Softcover.
This selection of essays highlights the work of the late Gordon M. Day. Mr. Day spearheaded groundbreaking research on the history and culture of the Western Abenakis and their Indian neighbors. He established the presence of Abenaki settlements along Lake Champlain and the Connecticut and Merrimack rivers.
Gordon Day focused his work on the community of Saint Francis, or Odanak, in Quebec, to which Abenaki refugees from New England had fled.
Day synthesized data from fragmentary historical records, oral traditions, and place names to reconstruct a lost world.
