First-person accounts, historical events and anecdotes bring the lives of the ancient Algonquin tribe into vivid view in If These Trees Could Only Talk.
Pompano Beach, FL, US., May 25, 2014 - (PressReleasePoint) - If These Trees Could Only Talk: An Anecdotal History of New York City’s Pelham Bay Park goes beyond the standard history recitation to take readers on a virtual journey through the ancient past. The new Native American history book by author Ted Kazimiroff is published by Outskirts Press.
Kazimiroff, a retired teacher with the New York public school system, was raised and taught Indian lore, history, woodsmanship and survival skills in Pelham Bay Park, The Bronx, the largest of New York’s public parks. With If These Trees Could Only Talk, Kazimiroff takes readers on an vivid journey of mind and spirit, where they’ll vicariously experience fear, pain, even death, at the hands of real villains. What makes this story so different? It is real.
The cataclysms, blizzards, invasions, piracy, wars, upheavals, and more depicted in If These Trees Could Only Talk actually happened. In this prequel to the highly acclaimed The Last Algonquin, Kazimiroff takes readers on a virtual safari to the dawn of time through to the near present, a journey through a New York City park where ancient as well as more modern history is still evident, to bring the ancient world of the Algonquin natives alive. Through it all, readers will experience the Indians’ rise and fall, the colonial era and modern times through a series of interrelated first-person stories, events and anecdotes.
The book includes maps and a self-guided, multi-disciplinary walking tour of Pelham Park. Readers can stand in the footsteps of the Algonquins and study the many natural sciences available in the protected sanctuaries of this park treasure.
