Western Abenakis of Vermont 1600-1800
War, Migration, and the Survival of an Indian People. By Colin G. Calloway. 346 pgs. Softcover.
Colin Calloway shows how Western Abenaki history has been hidden, ignored, or purposely obscured. Although his work focuses on Euro-American military interactions, Calloway provides valuable insights into why Indians and Indian identity have survived in Vermont despite their lack of recognition for centuries. -Laurence M. Hauptman, State University of New York, New Paltz.
Calloway explains that the land of the western Abenaki was an active part of the colonial period during the 17th & 18th centuries.
