Nominated for the National Book Award, this book is set in colonial Massachusetts where, in 1704, a French and Indian war party descended on the village of Deerfield, abducting a Puritan minister and his children. Although John Williams was eventually released, his daughter horrified the family by staying with her captors and marrying a Mohawk husband.
An important work of history about life in Colonial America. Early in 1704, a band of Indians and Frenchmen attacked a Massachusetts village, killing 50 and capturing 100--including Puritan minister John Williams and his five children. When at last they were released, Williams' young daughter Eunice refused to leave her Indian captors.
