Not something to read front to back necessarily, but very interesting. He is a master of revisionist history, and his accounts of various important New World men reveals a lot about the Puritan mindset, particularly the didactic panic of one trying to (re?)convert the wayward youth. I think I find this kind of text so engaging because it resonates with my own experiences as LDS; i.e., it's not the first time I have had experience with this genre. :)
