This is a fascinating book about Gardiner's Island, the oldest manorial estate in the United States and the seat of my paternal ancestry. I am a direct descendant of Lion Gardiner, who raised the fort at Saybrook, CT and fought in the Pequot War before removing to Gardiner's Island. ( )

I'm very fond of this book, primarily because I descend directly from Lion Gardiner. It's a fascinating recollection of early American history, and the island is a North American treasure, being the only manorial property to remain within the same family since 1639. ( )
