Once, the East was frontierthe boundary between complex Native cultures and the first colonizing Europeans. How they adopted and adapted the ways and manners of the other, while contesting for control of what all considered to be their land, shaped societies on both sides in profound ways that still reverberate today. The First Frontiertraces two and a half centuries of history through poignant, mostly unheralded personal storieslike that of a Harvard-educated Indian caught up in seventeenth-century warfare, a mixed-blood interpreter trying to straddle his white and Native heritage, and a Puritan woman wielding a scalping knife. It is the first book in years to tell the far-reaching story of the Eastern frontier, combining vivid storytelling informed by the latest research to bring to life the tumultuous, uncertain times that were an inherent part of creating a new society.
