Learn the story of many Native People found within the boundaries of Androscoggin County, the places they frequented, and the artifacts they left behind. Discover several Wabanaki veterans who fought as Americans in the War of Independence and the War Between the States.

Chapters cover Ancient History, European Contact, Wars, Early White Settlement, 19th Century Survival, 20th Century, and Beyond. The book closes with a discussion about further study and suggested resources to help one discover more about this rich history.

A major portion covers the period of 1850 to 2000 -- a time period many believe does not have any Indian history.

Photos include artifacts from the Davis-Wagg Museum at the Androscoggin Historical Society as well as many ash and sweetgrass baskets from a number of local collections.
