From School Library Journal
Grade 1-4?Sewall explores the deteriorating relations between the English settlers in Plymouth and its environs and the native peoples that culminated in King Philip's War and the virtual destruction of the Wampanoags and their allies. As in her previous titles about the settlement of Massachusetts (The Pilgrims of Plimoth  and People of the Breaking Day [1990, Atheneum]), the story is told in the words of fictional participants, in this case the alternating voices of a Wampanoag and a pilgrim. This gives youngsters some insight into the misunderstandings that exacerbated the existing differences. As the crisis escalates, the narrative voices alternate more quickly, creating a sense of movement and tension. Full-page paintings illustrate the text; a map on the endpapers allows readers to locate places mentioned. More detailed accounts of the history covered here can be found for older readers, but Sewall's unique treatment makes the events accessible and provides a new perspective on them. An interesting and attractive addition.?Elaine Fort Weischedel, Turner Free Library, Randolph, MA
