Nicole Eustace’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book, Covered with Night: A Story of Murder and Indigenous Justice in Early America, begins on the eve of a major conference between the Iroquois and Anglo-American colonists when a pair of colonial fur traders brutally assaulted a Seneca hunter near Conestoga, Pennsylvania in the winter of 1722. Though virtually forgotten today, the crime ignited a contest between Native American forms of justice. 

Julian Sancton’s NYT best-seller Madhouse at the End of the Earth:The Belgica's Journey into the Dark Antarctic Night is  a true survival story of an early polar expedition that went terribly awry—with the ship frozen in ice and the crew trapped inside for the entire sunless, Antarctic winter.
