"This book examines the Nanticoke Indians from their origins to the English invasion of the Chespeake to the building of a new community in Delaware that is now over two centuries old. My purpose is to depict the Nanticokes as people with complex lives and intentions of their own within the context of their own history and American history." -Jayme Sokolow (Preface)
