Re: Some book reviews

HE! Folks,

                     I need your opinions, friends:
                 
                              I have been retired from teaching since 1993, and am now a widow withn a fixed income of SSI and a SMALL pension from PA,
where I taught for most of my almost 30 year career as a HS Science teacher.

                              I have become well-aware of some of the awful books about the Lenape- from friends like Ray W., Jm Rementer, the late Herb Kraft, etc.

                              My problem is: with this fixed income, should I BUY these books (bad as they are) to have some "ammunition" against the authors and subject matter? OR: should I refrain from  from putting out the $$$ - because, by purchasing the book(s), it may appear that I am supporting the author's work???

                               For those who don't know me, I have been a lecturer on the Lenape to school groups and the general public since 1957. I bring (at least) 7 pack baskets with real (thanks to Herb Kraft and his son John) and repro. hand-made items of everyday life: "The Daily Life of the Lenape Indians  in the Delaware Valley in the 1600's."  This is a hands-on talk, where the audience (mostly 4th graders)  can touch and handle skins, bows and arrows, war club, bear-claw neckace, corn pounder etc. At last count, I was taking 187 items with me.

                                  So you cvan see how deeply involved I have been since I first "discovered" the Lenape in 1955 at the NJ State School of Conersation in Stokes State  Forest, Sussex Co., NJ.   BTW: my FIRST  book on the Lenape was "Dickon Among the Lenape". 

                                    I invite your comments and suggestions.

                                                   Wanishi,
                                               MaryEllen Flynn
                                           "Tokipahkinao"

I'd buy them used or borrow them from the library and scan the pages with the bum material. Like I said. I'm trying to score Minderhout's  "bucket of road apples" for free. Then I'm mailing it to Ray in a stool sample box.
