George Flemming weaves together a variety of primary and secondary sources with archaeology gathered over a lifetime to chronicle the accounts of the Brotherton Reservation and surrounding communities. This labor of love is interesting and informative, and provides an insightful look into the daily life of missionaries and Lenape Indians living in Southern New Jersey from the mid-18th through the 19th centuries. Chapters relating to the surrounding communities are especially interesting, considering how much has changed in these areas. Most of the places Flemming documents are mere memories, consumed by development or absorbed back into the landscape.
