From the Publisher
"Joseph Nicolar's The Life and Traditions of the Red Man is surely a landmark text, and Annette Kolodny's framing helps make the narrative come alive."--Philip Deloria, author of Indians in Unexpected Places
"The Life and Traditions of the Red Man is an extraordinary rendering of Eastern Algonquian history, story, and prophecy, self-published in the nineteenth century by a native writer from the northeast coast of the United States. As remarkable as the text was Joseph Nicolar himself, a brilliant and largely self-educated member of the Penobscot tribe who fervently wished to pass on what he could to the younger generations."--Patricia Clark Smith, coauthor of On the Trail of Elder Brother: Glous'gap Stories of the Micmac Indians
"Joseph Nicolar's The Life and Traditions of the Red Man, reissued with Annette Kolodny's excellent prefatory material, provides students and scholars of American Indian literatures with a valuable text in a reader-friendly edition, which is, crucially, endorsed by the Penobscot Nation."-- Eric Cheyfitz, editor of The Columbia Guide to American Indian Literatures of the United States since 1945

Annette Kolodny researched the Penobscots thoroughly and the background information in her introduction helped make Nicholar's story even more real. I really enjoyed this journey into America's past.
