The author of the book about the legal battle faced by the Golden Hill tribe in Trumbull will be at the next meeting at the Shelton Reading Circle, at the Shelton History Center, 70 Ripton Road, on Friday, June 7, 7-8:30 p.m. Author Claude Clayton Smith will discuss his book, Quarter-Acre of Heartache, and answer questions.
The Golden Hill tribe was fighting to keep title to the land on which their reservation is based. This reservation comprised of one-quarter of an acre is considered to be the smallest Native American reservation in the United States, and the oldest in Connecticut.
Copies of this book can be obtained at the Huntington Branch Library by calling 203-926-0111 and placing a reserve. Books can be picked up at the main desk.
