Description: In 1973, the Mashantucket Pequot reservation in Ledyard, Connecticut, was a 214-acre tract of abandoned forest. By the mid-1990s the reservation had expanded to nearly 2,000 acres and had become home to over 600 people calling themselves tribal members. And Foxwoods, the world's largest casino, with a gross intake of more than $1 billion per year, had converted the reservation into Connecticut's biggest tourist attraction. The Pequots were re-created, immensely wealthy, and wielding enormous political influence in Washington with their contributions to the Democratic National Party.

The hardcover edition revealed that the people occupying the reservation and running Foxwoods are not in fact members of the historic Pequot tribe. Yet in 1983 they duped Congress into recognizing them as a tribe and expanding their land base to include property that was not previously Indian land. The revelations led to state and federal investigations and calls for congressional hearings. Now the paperback, with stunning new information, is certain to stir up even more controversy.
