9780300207668: The Saltwater Frontier: Indians and the Contest for the American Coast (New Directions in Narrative History)

A fascinating new perspective on Native seafaring and colonial violence in the seventeenth-century American Northeast

Andrew Lipman’s eye-opening first book is the previously untold story of how the ocean became a “frontier” between colonists and Indians. When the English and Dutch empires both tried to claim the same patch of coast between the Hudson River and Cape Cod, the sea itself became the arena of contact and conflict. During the violent European invasions, the region’s Algonquian-speaking Natives were navigators, boatbuilders, fishermen, pirates, and merchants who became active players in the emergence of the Atlantic World. Drawing from a wide range of English, Dutch, and archeological sources, Lipman uncovers a new geography of Native America that incorporates seawater as well as soil. Looking past Europeans’ arbitrary land boundaries, he reveals unseen links between local episodes and global events on distant shores.
 
Lipman’s book “successfully redirects the way we look at a familiar history” (Neal Salisbury, Smith College). Extensively researched and elegantly written, this latest addition to Yale’s seventeenth-century American history list brings the early years of New England and New York vividly to life.

About the Author :

Andrew Lipman is assistant professor of history at Barnard College, Columbia University. He lives in New York City.

Review :

“Written in lucid and graceful prose . . . Lipman’s impressive work is crucial reading.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review (Publishers Weekly)

“With The Saltwater Frontier, Andrew Lipman emerges as one of the greatest prose stylists among early American historians. Even more significantly, Lipman’s water-centric approach to Indian-European interactions upends much that we thought we knew. This book is simply superb.”—Erik R. Seeman, author of Death in the New World: Cross-Cultural Encounters, 1492-1800 (Erik R. Seeman)

“Most histories claim to be new; Andrew Lipman’s The Saltwater Frontier actually is. He tells how, facing invasion from the sea, Indian peoples responded by turning to the sea.”—Richard White, author of The Middle Ground (Richard White)

“This cutting-edge study will draw much needed attention to the waters of seventeenth-century Long Island Sound as a zone of Indian-colonial contact and imperial rivalry. Lipman approaches his topic with uncommon intelligence, creativity, and literary grace.”— David J. Silverman, George Washington University (David J. Silverman)

“A vitally important book for its maritime and regional foci, for its array of stunning insights on the events discussed, and for its engaging writing style.”—Neal Salisbury, Smith College (Neal Salisbury)

Winner of the 2016 Bancroft Prize in American History (Bancroft Prize Columbia University 2016-03-17)

“A brilliant reimagining of the English and Dutch settlements in New England and New York, and the role that the Atlantic Ocean played, as a frontier between the Native tribes and the European empires.”—True West (True West)

“Gripping . . . Lipman innovatively uses the sea to unite the histories of New York, New England and the region's native peoples by following the sailing ships and canoes along Long Island Sound up to Nantucket.”—Kathleen DuVal, The Wall Street Journal (Kathleen DuVal The Wall Street Journal)

“A profound, wide-ranging analysis of the commercial ambitions and vexed morality that transformed the Southern New England and New York coastal lands into the staging grounds they became.”—Providence Journal (Providence Journal)

Won honorable mention for the 2016 PROSE Awards in the U.S. History category. (Awards PROSE 2016-02-08)

“An exceptionally well-written book.”—Choice (Choice)

Selected as a 2016 New England Society Book Awards Finalists in the Nonfiction: History & Biography category. (New England Society Book Award New England Society Book Awards 2016-05-10)

“[Lipman] gives the reader an intriguing and ingenious story . . . enlightening and intelligent.”—East Hampton Star (East Hampton Star)

“Fresh and exciting . . . a brilliant book.”—Mystic Seaport Magazine (Mystic Seaport Magazine)

“Deeply researched and crisply written . . . The Saltwater Frontier is an important book . . . Lipman imbues careful research with interpretive flair, and as a result the book glows with new insights.”—American Historical Review (American Historical Review)
