MEREDITH — A History of the New Hampshire's Abenaki Indians written by Bruce D. Heald, PhD, is being released this month by The History Press.
The native Penacook, Winnipesaukee, Pigwacket, Sokoki, Cowasuck and Ossipee tribes once thrived along the Granite State's great rivers.
Collectively known as the Abenaki, these "men of the east" have largely disappeared from New Hampshire. Shadows remain, from the boiling of
sap for maple syrup to the game of lacrosse and traditional corn-and-bean succotash.
Historian Bruce Heald has mined, curated and saved the real story of this land's first people. Learn the unwritten laws of hospitality, respect
for the aged, honesty, independence and courtesy. Discover celebrations and innovations in the good times until European disease epidemics and
hostilities forced their slow retreat, leaving an enduring legacy.
Heald is an adjunct professor of American history for the History and Philosophy Department at Plymouth State University; an associate
professor at Babes-Bylyai University in Cluj-Napoca, Romania; a periodic lecturer of "Wars in U.S. History" at West Point; a senior purser
aboard the MS Mount Washington; and the author of over forty books and numerous articles about the history of New England.
Dr. Heald is a graduate of Boston University, University of Massachusetts–Lowell and Columbia Pacific University. He is presently a fellow in the International Biographical Association and the World Literary Academy in Cambridge, England. Dr. Heald was the recipient of the Gold Medal of Honor for literary achievement from the American Biographical Institute in 1993. From 2005 to 2008, he was a state representative to the general court of New Hampshire. Dr. Heald resides in Meredith with his family.
