This well researched book, from both Canadian and Colonial records, discusses the 1704 Raid by Indians on Deerfield, Massachusetts. It focuses mainly on Eunice Williams and others of Rev. John Williams family who were captured and taken to Canada. Many of the captives were killed on the trek northward; some found their way over time back to Deerfield - either escaping or paying for their release; some decided to stay and marry Native Americans.
Having ancestors who lived in Deerfield during this period made this book especially meaningful and truly brought history alive.

I had to read this book for a college course, and I'm glad I did! This part of American history (especially New England related history) is rarely taught in history classes (prior to this book, I didn't even realize the volatile nature of the region). It's very well researched and easy to read.
