Unsettled Past, Unsettled Future: The Story Of Maine Indians By Neil Rolde

Rolde explores what we know about the prehistory period in Maine, the first contact between Europeans and Indians, how wars and treaties affected tribal lands, and why Maine Indians were treated differently from many of the other tribes in the United States. You'll learn about their legends and culture, their struggles with government agents, the long fight for the right to vote, and the history of tribal representation in our legislature.

And then there's that 1790 federal law that made subsequent state treaties with Indians null and void unless ratified by Congress, and the realization in the 1970s that title to two-thirds of Maine was clouded, leading to the Maine Indian Lands Claim Settlement Act. Was it fair? Is it over?

Tilbury House® is an independent publishing company that began about thirty years ago as Harpswell Press, publishing Maine books. They grew slowly, adding some children's books, and in 1990 merged with another small publisher, the Dog Ear Press, to become Tilbury House, Publishers.

Their children's book division took off with the publication of Talking Walls, and it has continued to publish award-winning children's picture books about cultural diversity, social justice, nature, and the environment. Tilbury's adult books are primarily regional non-fiction, mostly history, some maritime history, and some environmental work. But every once in a while something different comes up that they can't resist, and they publish that too!
