So Much History, Such a Small Village written by Jeremy V. P. Rogers is a 409 page book, which deals with 18,000 years of history as seen through the lens of a small western Massachusetts village. This volume is written for the serious student of the history and landscape of the Connecticut River Valley, with a focus around the area of Deerfield, Massachusetts, as well as for the interested public. The book examines the progression of events from human arrival in the area at least 12,350 years ago.  The evolution of those relatively primitive groups into the well organized tribal societies which the English first encountered will be examined. Next the impact of English migration is gauged both from the perspective of why the English wanted to leave their homeland and migrate and also the perspective of what happened to the people already populating New England. The final series of chapters closely examine the events following the contact period up through the early 20th century. The book is essentially a look at America’s past through the experiences and events in a small New England village, Deerfield, Massachusetts.
