Please join Andrew Lipman as he discusses his recent book, The Saltwater Frontier. The Saltwater Frontier is the previously untold story of how the ocean became a “frontier” between colonists and Indians. When the English and Dutch empires both tried to claim the same patch of coast between the Hudson River and Cape Cod, the sea itself became the arena of contact and conflict.
