Suggested Reading List


The Island at the Center of the World


Author: Russell Shorto


Description: When the British wrested New Amsterdam from the Dutch in 1664, the truth about its thriving, polyglot society began to disappear into myths about a cartoonish peg-legged governor and an island purchased for 24 dollars. But the story of the Dutch colony of New Netherland was merely lost, not destroyed: 12,000 pages of its records - recently declared a national treasure - are now being translated. Drawing on this remarkable archive, Russell Shorto has created a gripping narrative - a story of global sweep centered on a wilderness called Manhattan - that transforms our understanding of early America.



Dutch New York - The Roots of Hudson Valley Culture


Author: Hudson River Museum


Description: Based on fresh research, "Dutch New York" is at once a fascinating introduction to a unique history and a much-needed new look at the Dutch role in America's origins and in creating the habits, styles, and practices identified as quint-essentially New York's. This lavishly illustrated book is a companion to the exhibition at the Hudson River Museum and is edited by Roger Panetta, Curator of the Hudson River Collection, and Visiting Professor of History at Fordham University.
