Interesting books to read

For those of you who have read THE UNREDEEMED CAPTIVE. A FAMILY STORY FROM EARLY AMERICA, by John Demos, will enjoy DISTANT RELATIONS. HOW MY ANCESTORS COLONIZED NORTH AMERICA, by Victoria Freeman. Both books are good examples of family histories as opposed to genealogies. With the first book, we start on the east coast of British North America, not only learning about the Europeans but also the Native Americans and move into Quebec and the First Americans there. The second books overlaps and continues the families and the various Native Indian groups and their relationships extending into Ontario. It is quite an interesting journey and includes a lot of history of the First Nations' relationships with the Canadian government. Both are indexed and well documented with numerous sources. Well worth the read just for the history examples.
