$25.95

This volume highlights the work of the late Gordon M. Day, renowned for his ground-breaking research on the history, language and culture of the Western Abenakis and their Indian neighbors.  Where previous historians had tended to portray northern New England as an area largely devoid of aboriginal peoples, Day established beyond all doubt the presence of Abenaki settlements along the eastern shore of Lake Champlain as well as the middle and upper reaches of the Connecticut and Merrimack rivers.  Charts and maps.  328 pages, softcover.
