"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 --Richard Lyman Bushman "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 --Peter C. Mancall
