They would say now amongst themselves, that the governor would be so angry for his loss at Sudbury, that he would send no more about the captives, which made me grieve and tremble. My sister being not far from the place where we now were, and hearing that I was here, desired her master to let her come and see me, and he was willing to it, and would go with her; but she being ready before him, told him she would go before, and was come within a mile or two of the place

A fascinating first-hand account.

I found this book to be very interesting as I am a descendant of a person taken as a captive in 1704 who was taken to Canada. The difference between my ancestor and Mary Rowlandson is the fact that my ancestor chose to remain in Canada, married there and raised her family. This narrative gives a good idea of the treatment of some of the captives, and gives insight to the rational behind a lot of the taking of captives during this period of time. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about the French and Indian Wars.

This personal story of Mrs. Rowlandson's experience with Native Americans more than 400 years ago is fascinating. Her village attacked, many settlers slain, she is captured with her wounded child, and marched into the wilderness. She links her story to Biblical verses which sustained her through the ordeal. This book is great for history buffs, as well as those looking for inspirational writings. Additionally, the reader gets an immediate sense of the precarious situation of indigenous peoples, who were being pushed off their abundant hunting grounds.

I read this in two days. It's the historical account of a young mother's capture by Indians. Unlike other documented kidnappings she felt it wiser not to try and escape. The Indians viewed her as a slave and were more interested in ransoming her than hurting her. She felt she would be safer to accomodate their plans. She gives a very detailed account of her situation. It is graphic and sometimes very gruesome. But she tells the whole story. Where she was mistreated she says so, but she also recounts the acts of kindnesses that she experience. Great reading for all.

The profoundly disturbing and culturally interesting narrative should be read by everyone. I do not hold Rowlandson's religious views, nor her views of Native Americans, but I do not blame her either. I find it shameful that she is not more well known and that she seemingly did not write anything else in her lifetime. Although, I am glad she saw no more reason to for her sake.

The book is a little hard to follow due to the old way of speaking but the messages are very clear. I would recommend this book to anyone who is spiritual and believes in God. Highly recommend for those that are struggling with their belief.

The kindle edition was excellent. This is an important account of the suffering of an English captive during the King Philips war in 17th century New England. A very compelling story and well worth reading.

It wasn't bad but didn't offer Any thing new to the knowledge I had. Sometimes confusing, the point was understood with patience
In this story a woman is held in slavery for a few weeks by "Heathen Indians", her trials and tribulations are shared in her own words. to really put the story of slavery into prospective read "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl Written by Herself" {Harriet Ann Jacobs (Author)}. I found that reading the two works in close proximity gives a wider prospective than either alone.
