Explores Indigenous and settler societal interaction in the Adirondacks over la longue durée.

"A passionate, comprehensive, much-needed affirmation of the ongoing and ancient presence of Native people in the Adirondacks."—Douglas M. George-Kanentiio, author of Iroquois Culture and Commentary

"Otis has done an excellent job of crafting this narrative. This book promises to make a splash in Native American studies."—Jon Parmenter, author of The Edge of the Woods: Iroquoia, 1534–1701

"Otis’s book fills one of the most gaping holes in the study of the Adirondacks and vanquishes the ‘Indians never lived here’ meme for all time. It is a rich and readable account not only of Native people in the Adirondacks historically, but more specifically during the period of invisibility and assimilation between the War of Independence and the dawn of the "high steel" age. . . . It is timely, overdue and will be the standard work for decades."—Christopher Shaw, former editor of Adirondack Life and author of Sacred Monkey River
