About the Book
The English colonists were invited to live on native American land, but within fifty years after they had settled throughout the Boston Bay Colony, they no longer honored the treaty they had signed with Massasoit. His son, Metacomet (aka Philip), King and Sachem of the Wampanoag Indians, fought a bloody war against the Puritans (circa 1676); King Philip burned many towns and won every major battle, only to see his people destroyed by hunger, disease, and genocide. Among those captured by the Indians was Mary Rowlandson, who later wrote a personal account of her ordeal. The story is a sweeping saga of King Philipís fight to save the Wampanoag way of life and also tells of his last, desperate effort to unite all the Indian tribes. Demonized and completely misrepresented in many historical accounts, S. R. Lavinís narrative is at once an accurate and insightful interpretation of the Wampanoag way of life, and what really caused such a bloody war which ultimately changed history.
