"It has been said that Indians never lived in Vermont; that they only passed through and used it as a fishing and hunting ground. The purpose of this book is to prove to the reader that Indians did, indeed, live in Vermont; some of them for many centuries before the coming of the white man . . . The main purpose of this book is to make Vermonters and other interested people aware of the prehistoric and historic Indian cultures that flourished in this area, some of which date back to several centuries B.C."
