America s Puritan roots in this witty exploration of the ways in which our country s present predicaments are inextricably tied to its past In a style less colloquial than her previous books, Vowell traces the 1630 journey of several key English colonists and members of the Massachusetts Bay Colony Foremost among these men was John Winthrop, who would become governor of Massachusetts While the Puritans who had earlier sailed to Plymouth on the Mayflower were separatists, Winthrop s followers remained loyal to England, spurred on by Puritan Reverend John Cotton s proclamation that they were God s chosen people Vowell underscores that the seemingly minute differences between the Plymouth Puritans and the Massachusetts Puritans were as meaningful as the current Sunni Shia Muslim rift Gracefully interspersing her history lesson with personal anecdotes, Vowell offers reflections that are both amusing colonial history lesson via The Brady Bunch and tender watching New Yorkers

through the frequently misunderstood Puritan period Several wrote that she will draw in readers who might not otherwise pick up a book on the subject what could be better than history with the voice of Violet from The Incredibles But others found Vowell s treatment to be less dexterous she slips in jokes where they don t make sense and too often explains the past through pop culture references despite her clear understanding of it through original texts Those who enjoy traditional history books may be dissatisfied Yet, as one reviewer noted, Vowell s irreverence frees her to explore the lives of neglected figures such as Anne Hutchinson and to illuminate aspects of the Puritan era that serious authors might have missed.Copyright 2008 Bookmarks Publishing LLC The Wordy Shipmates Sarah
