Much of what we know about New England's native American population at the time of first contact is derived from the accounts of the earliest European explorers, visitors, and settlers. This collection of authentic eyewitness accounts written between 1524 and 1674 covers every aspect of New England Indian life, including first contacts, family life, work, play, crafts, religious beliefs, and relations with Europeans.
Although spelling and punctuation have been modernized, the original writers' language has been otherwise preserved, giving the reader a "you are there" feeling and a strong sense of the writers' perspectives. Illustrations of actual New England Indian artifacts drawn by the editor's daughters add further dimension to the reader's experience.
