AFTER KING PHILIP'S WAR: PRESENCE AND PERSISTENCE IN INDIAN NEW ENGLAND Edited By COLIN G. CALLOWAY
The 1676 killing of Metacomet, the tribal leader dubbed "King Philip" by colonists, is commonly seen as a watershed event, marking the end of a bloody war, the dissolution of Indian society in New England, and even the disappearance of native people from the region. This collection challenges that assumption, showing that Indians adapted and survived, existing quietly on the fringes of Yankee society. Paper, 1997, 247pp.
