“Our Beloved Kin” and “Memory Lands”

Two books I just put on my reading list, thanks to my friend Rich Holsuch: “Our Beloved Kin: A New History of King Philip’s War” by Lisa Brooks and “Memory Lands: King Philips War and the Place of Violence in the Northeast” by Christine M. Delucia

   "Both authors write from the authority of their own Native American lens... a belief system under which all animate and inanimate objects are beings with palpable spirits. That includes lakes and ponds and streams, mountains and swamps and high, lonesome glacial-erratic boulders, beavers and bears and deer, insects and worms and underworld serpents..."
