These eight reports by white settlers held captive by Indians gripped the imagination not only of early settlers but also of American writers through our history. Puritans among the Indians presents, in modern spelling, the best of the New England narratives. These both delineate the social and ideological struggle between the captors and the settlers, and constitute a dramatic rendition of the Puritans’ spiritual struggle for redemption.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Until the publication of Puritans among the Indians, there was no edition of captivity narratives that so successfully brought together the twin themes of literature and ethnohistory… It is a joy to read a book so well made, intelligently edited, and carefully annotated…a model collection. - Western Historical Quarterly

An exceptionally readable introduction to literature which is not only a significant source for colonial history and ethnography but also a revealing illustration of the Puritan religious vision. - Church History
