Behind the Frontier tells the story of the Indians in Massachusetts as English settlements moved past them between 1675 and 1775, from King Philip's War to the Battle of Bunker Hill. Mandell explores how local needs and regional conditions shaped an Indian ethnic group that transcended race, tribe, village, and clan, with a culture that incorporated new ways while maintaining a core of "Indian" customs. And soon the Gay Head tribe, a community that you will frequently encounter in this book but was believed to have "died" in the late nineteenth century, will build its own casino. Historians generally close their studies of Indians and colonists in southern New England with the colonists' military triumph in 1676. After 1676, Indians were but a few scattered islands in the English sea of eastern Massachusetts. This helpless, conquered minority may seem inconsequential.

I know the Penobscot Indians lived in Maine but I don't see a history book on them. They were part of the "eastern Abenaki" grouping of northern Indians (Colin Calloway has a good book on the "western Abenaki" of Vermont). The Abenaki as a whole were members of the larger Wabanaki Confederacy.

A good source for facts not available (or hard to find) about indians of southern new england after KPW. Not particularly well organized or well written. Sometimes hard to follow.

Mandell does excellent work. He uses records that others have over looked. It is the best work on the topic.

Behind the Frontier offers a look at the fall of the Indian nations in Eastern Massachusetts during the mid to late 1700's as white settlers encroached on their land and assimilated them into their cultures. Mandell talks a look at a wide range of factors from trade, war, disease, intermarriage, and legal conflicts that changed the tribes in the area reducing their traditional way of living to nothing and showing how they melded in with the culture. These tribes did not disappear in the traditional sense but lived on behind the frontier by assimilating into societies including Boston. This book does work well to dismiss the general myth that Indians simply were wiped out after King Philips War. It is a very specific topic and one needs to be very interested in Indian history of New England or you will quickly find this a dry book. I have a general interest in colonial history and found parts of this to be very slow at times. One thing Mandell does not do well is outline where each of the Indian tribes is living. This book assumes a lot of knowledge about the geography of New England which I did not have as a reader. There is not a single map to give you a frame of reference so be prepared to research online to follow along. Overall a very strong book analytically, but only if you have some background knowledge in New England colonial history.
