Proud & Determined: A History of the Stockbridge Mohicans, 1734-2014.

Author Jeff Siemers shares the story of the Stockbridge Mohicans, as told in his latest book. He first became familiar with the Stockbridge Mohicans when he was part of a group of whitewater canoeists and kayakers that was stopped for trespassing on the reservation. He has been researching the tribe's history since 2003.

Hard times and adversity plagued the Stockbridge Mohicans through nearly three centuries. Forced to move west, divided over federal Indian policy, and abandoned by their sponsors, can this proud and determined people make a comeback?
