Summary
  • "Castorland Journal is especially rich on the interaction of foreign and American land speculators and on the displacement of native peoples. Perceptive, articulate, and frank, the French authors crafted a detailed and insightful (and often highly critical) account of their flawed attempt to profit from the rapid expansion of new settlements."--Alan Taylor, University of California, Davis, author of the Divided Ground: Indians, Settlers, and the Northern Borderland of the American Revolution
  • "Castorland Journal gives a wonderfully vivid portrait of life on the early American frontier. The journal by Simon Desjardins and Pierre Pharoux sheds tremendous light on the process of land development in the post-Revolutionary period, on European-Indian relations, and on social life in the backcountry more generally. Elegantly written, it focuses on the often-overlooked but critical area of northwest New York on the U.S.-Canada borderland."--Francois Furstenberg, University of Montreal, author of in the Name of the Father --Book Jacket
