Regretfully I've stopped reading [The Voice of the Dawn: An Autohistory of the Abenaki Nation] - the reason being that while I understand and to some degree sympathize with what the author has in mind, namely, writing the history of his people in a manner and style that is appropriate for the way his people view history, through story as well as fact, it isn't going to work for me. Not because it isn't a worthy attempt, but because the two threads are insufficiently separated and the work reads, well, eccentrically and crankily. I will probably keep the book around, at least for awhile, as I live in Western Abenaki country and am deeply interested, more than interested for, where I live (western slopes of the Green Mountains), I feel surrounded by those who lived here before me, almost to feeling spoken to when I walk through the woods and pass by particular places which seem to be asking me to notice them and remember who was here before.

Can't rate as I did not complete.

We do not recommend this book. A great deal of the claims made by the author can not be backed up by any sort of historical documentation or other sources. It is not good history. ( )
