This book is an attempt to make available to the general reader what anthropologists have learned (and are still learning) about Vermont's original inhabitants, past and present. In it, we have striven for synthesis, rather than presentation of detail, so that the book might have the broadest possible appeal. Our presentation is kept as uncomplicated as possible, with the concepts employed, emerging or made clear, in the course of it.  What we have to offer, then, is a general statement about how people lived in Vermont before the arrival of the Europeans, why they lived the way they did, and what has been their fate in the wake of foreign intrusion and domination. 

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