'The Island at the Centre of the World' (2004)

The American bestseller The Island at the Centre of the World, a narrative history of Manhattan’s founding by author Russell Shorto, is now being developed as a dramatic series for Production Broadcast Service. Russell Shorto’s book is based on Dutch archives in New York. Charles Gehring, director of the New Netherland Research Center, translated these archives from Old Dutch to present-day English. In doing so, he has brought history back to life and boosted American appreciation for and interest in the Dutch roots of their own country.
