Harrington interviewed people of the Lenape tribe in the 1920s Primary source interviews cannot be undervalued in research That being said interview techniues and how we interpret information changes over many decades changes how we look at facts and social context; we must be wary of misinformation in older books I'm saying this because I don't know just how to rank this book While it is presented as fiction this could be considered a research tool Dickon our main character was a 17th century boy who was swept overboard as his ship which had embarked in England approached Virginia he was rescued and adopted by a Lenape tribe He describes every day life among his new community from Harrington's interviews including their language crafts and celebrations I do recommend Dickon Among the Lenapes and proudly have it in the New Jersey section of my personal library I just want readers to understand that its age and how we look at indigenous peoples isn't the same as it was in this nearly century old book
