Who were the Lenape?
Explore Schuylkill County history, especially the natives and early settlers who shared this land of tranquility and beauty. Examine 18th Century maps. Experience what a French & Indian War fort looked like. Learn about native foods, medicine, dress and culture. Find out about “Princess” Wynonah who was born in 1734 into the Lenape Delaware Royal Family. What role did she play in her tribe and in history? Trace her steps from the banks of the Schuylkill River to the Ohio Country. Ride with Wynonah and George Washington to an Indian campsite where a near-tragic accident occurs. This was a time of great unrest and transition. Local history will come alive! This is a book for men and women, young and mature, lovers of fiction and nonfiction. It’s a book to be shared and savored with your family for lively discussion and pride of heritage. Gretchen Hardy has written an extraordinary, fascinating book about life in the mid 1700s.
