Col mondo degli Indiani d'America, ognuno di noi ha un rapporto particolare, spesso più emotivo che culturale, che affonda le sue radici nell'infanzia, nei molti film, racconti, giochi che hanno popolato i nostri pomeriggi adolescenziali. All'immagine dell'indiano crudele e selvaggio si è presto sovrapposta quella dell'indiano buono che, dopo esser vissuto per millenni in armonia con la sua terra, ne è stato scacciato ignominiosamente dai "visi pallidi". Quella che viene comunemente definita "La conquista del West", in realtà è uno dei maggiori genocidi perpetuati dall'uomo "civilizzato" nei confronti dei suoi simili. I nativi Nordamericani, i pellirossa, avevano delle regole antichissime per rispettare la natura in tutte le sue espressioni, dai suoi simili, agli animali, alle piante, alle montagne, all'acqua, al fuoco. I cacciatori uccidevano solo per mangiare e per riscaldarsi, ma mai femmine o cuccioli. Dovremmo imparare da loro. Un libro per chi ama i "pellerossa" e la loro cultura. Ma anche per chi si interessa di erboristeria, di medicina esoterica, di "magia" terapeutica. L'autore, noto antropologo, ci introduce nella cultura di un popolo d'inestimabile saggezza che ha sempre vissuto la natura come amica e quanto da essa si può ricavare come eterno alleato. Da leggere assolutamente. Bellissimo. (Misteria.org)

"It is offered not as a textbook nor as a scientific discussion, but merely as reading entertainment founded on the life history, social struggle, and customs of a little-known people."—From the PrefaceC. A. Weslager's Delaware's Forgotten Folk chronicles the history of the Nanticoke Indians and the Cheswold Moors, from John Smith's first encounter with the Nanticokes along the Kuskakarawaok River in 1608, to the struggles faced by these uniquely multiracial communities amid the racial and social tensions of mid-twentieth-century America. It explores the legend surrounding the origin of the two distinct but intricately intertwined groups, focusing on how their uncommon racial heritage—white, black, and Native American—shaped their identity within society and how their traditional culture retained its significance into their present.Weslager's demonstrated command of available information and his familiarity with the people themselves bespeak his deep respect for the Moor and Nanticoke communities. What began as a curious inquiry into the overlooked peoples of the Delaware River Valley developed into an attentive and thoughtful study of a distinct group of people struggling to remain a cultural community in the face of modern opposition. Originally published in 1943, Delaware's Forgotten Folk endures as one of the fundamental volumes on understanding the life and history of the Nanticoke and Moor peoples

John Garrett (d.1757) settled in New Castle County, Delaware during or before 1726. Descendants lived in Delaware, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and elsewhere. Because of a multi-million dollar inheritance in the family in the twentieth century, with subsequent court cases, much genealogical research was done (some of which was erroneous)
