Susan Brewer investigates the history of Oneida Indian land in central New York State by recounting the story of one piece of land and the two families who lived on it. By tracing the experiences of these people over the past four centuries, Brewer uncovers a surprising history of entwined lives and contested memories influenced by oral tradition, written records, and disputed land claims.
