Caduto’s A Time Before New Hampshire fills a major gap in the literature of both natural and human history in New Hampshire, as well as of their interrelationships. Caduto presents a rich and dense story in a remarkably engaging way… Readers are asked to walk on a solo ‘time-lapse’ journey through a vastly changing physical, environmental, and cultural landscape-starting from the beginning, and checking their twenty-four-hour watches along the way… Caduto has also consciously conducted his research in a manner respectful to both the ancestors and the descendants of the Native American Indians he discusses… Caduto’s A Time Before New Hampshire is a must-read for every New Hampshirite and can be enjoyed by just about any audience.
