    I enjoyed the perspective he gave without feeling like he was taking away from the main idea.

    The story behind the story is probably what is the most interesting here. Thomas Morton was the original American rebel, butting heads with the Puritans of Plymouth during the 1600s because of his embrace of Indians and the unfettered life. Unfortunately, this book of his is very hard going, given its old language, its time-lost references and the fact that the original typesetter may not have even spoken English.

    If you have ever wondered if there was a suppressed alternative narrative to the puritans in New England, this is it. Thomas Morton founded the New England colony Merrymount in 1623, which was eventually attacked and destroyed by Puritan elements. This book relates his fascinating experiences and adventures. He is strongly supportive of the native population. He speculates that the Native American population may have come from Tartary, which is a brilliant observation. He brings this same sense of If you have ever wondered if there was a suppressed alternative narrative to the puritans in New England, this is it.

He is strongly supportive of the native population. He speculates that the Native American population may have come from Tartary, which is a brilliant observation. He brings this same sense of observation to all he does. He admires the native population because they're honest in word and deed. He obviously dislikes the Puritans at Plymouth and holds them responsible for the destruction of the colony he started, Merrymount. If the facsimile edition was a bit hard to read because of the typesetting--an f could also be an s--it also was a pleasure. More than anything, New English Canaan shows another direction that could have been taken if the Puritans, zealots that they were, weren't so determined to destroy the other, competing visions of what the New World could be.

    Hilarious other-side-of-the-story view of an infamous early American

    Love the contrast between the indigenous people and the puritans. However, I absolutely hated the writing style. Not my cup of tea but his point of view really does matter! So, it wasn't a total waste of my time :)
