As a Central New Yorker who spent a few years living down in the city I was fascinated to read about the Lenape people who occupied The Big Apple before it became the Big Apple Unfortunately as one reviewer pointed out the book is a catalog of facts with very little story line Very interesting but wonky to follow A few glaring omissions 1 The author repeatedly stressesinsinuates that Algonuin still occupy NYC and the boroughs Why didn t he interview anyone I would have loved to hear from Native Americans who survived the plague wars eradications and chose to make their home in this Iron Jungle today 2 There needed to be WAY maps in the book There are chapters that lead the viewer street by street through the boroughs talking about what used to be there One tiny map of the whole Metro NYC area doesn t cut it Too hard to follow 3I ve read claims by several other Algonuin scholars that this book is far from accurate and the author has re written a bit of history here Hmmm 4 Author mentions repeatedly that very little evidence of the Algonuins has survived so much of it was buried under tons of concrete and landfill but he touches on a FEW finds and that s it Doesn t really give them a lot of page room which was odd SO for all those reasons I give this book 3 stars
