Abstract:

The Indian sale of Manhattan for twenty-four dollars is one of the world's most cherished legends. Few people know that the Indians who made the fabled sale were Munsees whose ancestral homeland lay between the lower Hudson and the upper Delaware river valleys. The Munsee Indians interweaves a mass of archaeological, anthropological, and archival source material to resurrect the lost history of this forgotten people, from their earliest contacts with Europeans to their final expulsion just before the American Revolution. --publisher's description.
