Weslager / L. T. Alexander". Probable first edition. "A strangely fascinating story of a virtually unknown people - survivors of a primitive race in the very midst of modern civilization - is told in this book. In Delaware for generations two curious groups of persons, the Nanticokes of Indian River and the Moors of Cheswold, have lived close to but apart from their white and Negro neighbors. Practically nothing has been known of their origin, character, and intimate way of life, except that they maintained a group identity that did not sanction interference from outsiders. The veil is lifted for the first time in this volume. It proves conclusively that they are descendants of Algonkian-speaking Indians who inhabited the region before the European colonists drove mosts of the tribes into the western wildernesses.."
