I just finished The Indians of New Jersey: Dickon Among the Lenapes by M.R. Harrington – one of the most interesting books ever. It's about a young boy washed off an English ship off the coast of N.J. in 1612. Rescued by the Lenape Indians, he lived with them for two years The story of his survival is truly fascinating and, I have no doubt, very accurate and presented in vivid detail. I most highly recommend it.
