Writing History & Mysteries

When I'm not delving into historical research, I'm planning a character's demise.

I visited here (on both sides of the border) over this last weekend in researching for my book on Indian Land Title in New York to be released this year by The History Press. Right now I am in the process of getting all my images for the book ready.

Below is the map of "St. Regis Reservation" from the 1890 Indian census. The triangle in red is the current land claim area. This area is covered extensively in my book with new information. It is a legitimate claim that this land was fraudulently taken.

Stay tuned for more history tidbits throughout the month of April!

  3. So sad to think that besides putting them on a reservation our ancestors thought they needed to steal from them too!

  4. Great to find another New York historian in the challenge! My focus is animals in New York City history. I don't live in the city, I'm in the Hudson Valley, but I have been to western NY on several occasions and I love all NY history. Nice to find you.

  5. Good luck with the book! I never heard of this spot. Always like reading about NY history and Native American history.

Waiting for Harvey
4 of 5 stars
Alone, in a cabin in the woods, with a ghost. Who could ask for more in a ghost story? Harvey starts right out with a hint of foreboding in a conversation between brothers John and Erik. Already my curiosity is roused as to what happened...

I randomly downloaded this on my iPad when I hit the wrong button being a bumble fingers, so I thought I'd give it a shot. I've never read fanfic before. It was pretty good. But like many other people, it still can't compare to J. K. Row...
