LEDYARD, Conn. -- There isn't even a sign at the exit along Interstate 95 to direct motorists to the new Foxwoods casino on an Indian reservation here, but gamblers don't seem to be having any trouble finding the place.They've been coming in droves.Since the casino first opened Feb. 15, resulting in bumper-to-bumper traffic on the rural road that leads to it, the $60 million gambling emporium -- the first on the East Coast outside Atlantic City, N.J. -- has surpassed even the most optimistic expectations.

One of the nation's most prominent hedge funds, Pequot Capital Management Inc., is under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission for possible insider trading, according to government officials briefed on the case. The SEC declined yesterday to confirm or deny that it was investigating Pequot, a $7 billion fund overseen by Arthur J. Samberg, 65, a leading money manager and philanthropist. But a lawyer who once led the agency's investigation has told Congress that the fund's trading repeatedly aroused suspicion among stock exchange officials, prompting them on 18 occasions to refer cases to the SEC for further investigation, records show.

LEDYARD, Conn. -- From here it's not hard to see why the Piscataway Indians are dreaming of prosperity and tribal regeneration through casino gambling in Maryland.Their inspiration is Foxwoods, a gargantuan glass gambling palace perched in the wooded hills of southeastern Connecticut. The enterprise seems propelled by an unstoppable need to grow ever larger, making the Mashantucket Pequot Indians, who own it, ever richer.Saverio Scheri, the director of engineering at Foxwoods and the man in charge of a $250-million expansion, won't say how much the gaming operations take in every day. He did say the slot machines alone swallow more than $1 million.

Back in 1637, Connecticut's Pequot Indians were virtually annihilated by the local Colonists around Mystic in a massacre that lasted just one hour.It took the patient Pequots more than three centuries to rebound, but there's little argument in the area today that the tribe now holds all the cards.Most tourists quickly realize this too, because they usually learn about the so-called Pequot Wars as I did: in the tiny museum outside the high-stakes poker room in Foxwoods Resort Casino -- the tribe's multimillion-dollar enterprise that is by far the Nutmeg State's No. 1 tourist attraction.

IN THE FIRE OF SPRING.Thomas Tryon.Knopf.626 pages. $25. "In the Fire of Spring" comes jangling and jouncing onto the scene like Cinderella's outlandish pumpkin carriage. Readers acquainted with actor/producer/novelist Thomas Tryon's historical romance "The Wings of the Morning" (1990) may remember that the Yellow Pumpkin is the name of Squire Appleton Talcott's splendid carriage and the most envied vehicle in Tryon's mythical 19th century Connecticut town. Nobody covets the Yellow Pumpkin more than Appleton's old skinflint archrival, Abednego Grimes.

MASHANTUCKET, Conn. -- Just three decades ago, Herman Melville's premature obituary of the Pequots seemed close to fulfillment. Over three centuries, the Mashantucket Pequot reservation had been whittled away to 213 acres. By the 1960s, only two older women remained on the land, living in a shack without running water or electricity. How times have changed. Federal recognition and settlement of land claims have boosted the reservation to 1,250 acres. It is home to more than 600 tribal members, mostly living in decent housing.

Behind the tall log palisade, the long-house wigwam awaits its visitors. Its walls are sheets of tulip-tree bark lashed to a framework of white cedar. Bench seating, made of small logs tied to knee-high supports, lines the perimeter. On the floor, the fire holes are heaps of gray ash, and the smell of smoke is in the air.The long house is a place for storytelling and an introduction to the half-acre Indian village in the Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center, which opened this month just north of Mystic, Conn.

MASHANTUCKET, Conn. -- A scent machine spews eau de smoky campfire, and an escalator ride through a fiberglass glacier includes geologic crunching and a 30-degree drop in temperature. But in this museum built with a blank check, the final display is a rickety yellow trailer with a shower head out back and a dented kettle on the stove.It was in just such trailers that the remnants of the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation spent a dozen hungry years repopulating a nearly abandoned Indian reservation -- only to become millionaires with an Oz-like casino so tall it twinkles with red lights to ward off airplanes.
