"Once there was a very small Indian tribe--like, really, really small, like, pretty much down to two people--that built a giant casino complex and went from poverty and near-extinction to fabulous wealth and fame. That, in a nutshell, is the story of the Mashantucket Pequots and their casino, Foxwoods, as told in REVENGE OF THE PEQUOTS by Kim Isaac Eisler. Its broad outlines are familiar to many, especially the odds players who have visited the surreal patch of Las Vegas towering over rural Ledyard, Conn. This is a book for those who have wondered, with curiosity deep enough to sustain them through 267 pages, how in the world such a thing came to be."Eisler, Kim Isaac is the author of 'Revenge of the Pequots How a Small Native American Tribe Created the Worlds Most Profitable Casino', published 2002 under ISBN 9780803267459 and ISBN 0803267452.
