In this New York Times bestseller, the author of Assassination Vacation "brings the [Puritan] era wickedly to life" ( Washington Post ).
To this day, America views itself as a Puritan nation, but Sarah Vowell investigates what that means-­and what it should mean. What she discovers is something far different from what their uptight shoebuckles- and-­corn reputation might suggest-­a highly literate, deeply principled, and surprisingly feisty people, whose story is filled with pamphlet feuds, witty courtroom dramas, and bloody vengeance.
Vowell takes us from the modern-­day reenactment of an Indian massacre to the Mohegan Sun casino, from old-­timey Puritan poetry, where "righteousness" is rhymed with "wilderness,­" to a Mayflower-­themed waterslide. Throughout, The Wordy Shipmates is rich in historical fact, humorous insight, and social commentary by one of America's most celebrated voices.
