"As the title suggests, this is a scholarly book, yet there's much here to interest general readers of American history. Anderson's mission is to examine the reasons for the stability of early New England." Providence Journal
"Historian Virginia DeJohn Anderson studied 693 settlers who came here on seven ships between 1635 and 1638... in careful prose, Anderson refracts their psychological makeup in a way that makes them understandable to us." The Boston Globe
"...besides being beautifully written, the book is both original and highly useful in linking so many issues so intelligently through collective biography....It is an apt depiction of the socioeconomic context within which much of the cultural and intellectual drama of New England was played." Richard P. Gildrie, William and Mary Quarterly
Focusing on the lives of nearly 700 emigrants, through analyses of the process of migration and settlement and of the symbolic meaning that participants attached to their experiences, this study tells the story of New England's origins as one of dynamism and change.
