In 'Covered With Night,' Nicole Eustace explores differing views of justice, grief in early America

Find a book excerpt here.

We revisit Scott Tong’s December 2021 conversation with New York University professor Nicole Eustace about her book “Covered with Night: A Story of Murder and Indigenous Justice in Early America,” which looks at the ramifications of a violent encounter between two white fur traders and an Indigenous hunter in 1722.

The book is a co-winner of the 2022 Pulitzer Prize in History.
