From the Native American sagamore seeking refuge from tribal raids to the foreign prince who came to participate in a Myopia polo match, Hamilton has always been a magnet for interesting events and fascinating characters. Pairing scrupulous research with wildly entertaining local anecdotes, Annette V. Janes paints a charming historical picture of the Hamlet. Read about the fatal danger of cooking too loudly, the horseman who smoked his cigars upright in the bowl of his pipe, the heinous murder of John Hoddy and the packs of wolves that used to prowl about, endangering children. Hamilton: Myths, Legends & a Few Quirky Characters presents a history that you've likely never heard before and won't soon forget.
