Abstract:

"From William Bradford's Of Plymouth Plantation (1651), the most comprehensive of all contemporary accounts of settlement in seventeenth century America, to Mary Rowlandson's Sovereignty and Goodness of God (1682), the best known of the Indian captivity narratives to come out of King Philip's War, to Benjamin Church's Entertaining Passages Relating to Philip's War (1716), an eye-opening account from Church's field notes from battle, the rare and fascinating documents gathered in this volume offer vivid glimpses into the experiences of early New England and the beginnings of what would become the United States.

Introduced by Nathaniel Philbrick, who relied on these works for the writing of his bestselling account Mayflower and set in context by Thomas Philbrick, this definitive volume of primary documents brings to life a seminal period in American history."--BOOK JACKET.
