Reviews

"Pieced together from scraps of evidence from dozens of archives, Jenny Pulsipher's startling story of John Wompas is a tour de force of historical imagination and reconstruction."--Richard Lyman Bushman, Gouverneur Morris Professor of History Emeritus, Columbia University "In an act of archival wizardry, Jenny Hale Pulsipher has recreated the life of John Wompas, a trans-Atlantic traveler and one-time Harvard student whose personal experiences reveal how one remarkable Nipmuc took control of his life in the midst of never-ending challenges. Swindler Sachem expands our understanding of indigenous New England in unexpected ways."--Peter C. Mancall, author of Fatal Journey: The Final Expedition of Henry Hudson--A Tale of Mutiny and Murder in the Arctic "No one knows the archives of New England colonialism better than Jenny Pulsipher. Only she could recover the story of John Wompas, who got the last laugh on his many foes."--Daniel K. Richter, University of Pennsylvania
