Swanendael in New Netherland
A massacred Dutch whaling colony on the shores of lower Delaware Bay lay abandoned for several months before one lone sailing ship discovered the tragic remains of the first settlement on Delaware.
This is the story of that colony- Swanendael, or The Valley of the Swans, by William J. Cohen. In vivid and exciting prose, William Cohen shows how it came to be, how it shaped the history of Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, and how its legacy continues in Lewes, Delaware.
