Description

Strange white folk one day shall come across the Great Sea and crowd red men off the earth -- so an old sachem warned our people many, many winters ago.
* * * *
It was scarcely three months after we settled at New Plymouth that several red men came to our village in friendship. But how difficult has been our task to civilize them....

This book starts where its companions Pilgrims of Plimoth and People of the Breaking Day left off. This is the story of two peoples meeting, the Pilgrims and the Wampanoags, and the eventual clash of their beliefs and cultures. It is a tale of good intentions, misunderstandings, betrayal, and finally of terrible, all-out war, which ultimately destroyed the Native American way of life in New England.
