The Brothertowns, a nation of American Indians who originate from New England, are unique in comprising members of various tribes from New England. These Christian Native Americans were tired of losing their lands, wanting only to live their lives without interference from outsiders, whether Indian or white.

Jarvis presents the histories of the tribes from which members of the Brothertowns came. The same theme appears throughout their histories: Indians swindled out of their lands either by whites or by members of their own tribe.

The Brothertowns did receive land from the Onieda Nation in New York, but eventually they were forced to move again due to losing that land. They relocated to an area in Wisconsin near Green Bay, where the Oniedas and Stockbridge-Munsees had also moved. The strategy they followed to keep their land again in Wisconsin was to become U.S. citizens.

This academic telling of the early history of the Brothertowns will appeal to those interested in Native American histories.
