Description

This book, like its predecessor The Invasion of America, is part of a history of how Euramericans and Amerindians shared in the creation of the society that became the United States of America. In that long process, different strategies were adopted by varied Indian tribes and European colonies in order to cope with the presence of all the others. The strategy of Puritan New England was armed conquest.
