Much as a drum line is repetitive, so is this book. It tells the story of several people, but they all say much the same thing: Old Plecker persecuted the Monacans of Amherst. These are the stories of those who stayed, but what about those who left? The Author's family left. Surely there were more families who were Monacan. Who were they? Where did they go, and what happened to them? The book has some interesting stories, but leaves a lot to be desired.

The book is an intereting genealogical book, but has historical errors regarding Tribal information. Adequate for "hints" and family history.

Rosemary Whitloc has a talent that is unrivaled, her unique approach to the documentation of the perspectives of the tribal members of the Monacan Indian Nation is a testamony to her very apparent love for her ancestry and heritage. This is a MUST READ for anyone interested in native American Indian life.
