Summary
"Here are fifty-five primary documents, culled from journals and diaries, courtroom testimony and sermons, which vividly bring to life the issues and attitudes of Puritan-Indian contact in seventeenth-century New England. The native-settler relationship is seen as a cultural conflict with a philosophical basis, arising out of the unity and conviction of hostile, but similar, cultures. Through conflicting voices we become privy to the Puritans' character, to their transparent self-interest, self-righteousness and guilt; and we discover that the period of 'Manifest Destiny, ' commonly associated with nineteenth-century Anglo-Saxon attitudes, finds its genesis in the Puritan mind"--Page 4 of cover
