For readers of the Pathfinders who would like to know a little more about certain aspects of the novels, or are curious about my research, here’s the list of most of the books I read while writing these novels of the 18th century New York frontier, grouped by subject. I say most because I invariably forget to log a book now and then. And this list doesn’t include myriad websites and trips east via Google Earth and YouTube.
