Sewall explores the deteriorating relations between the English settlers in Plymouth and the native peoples that culminated in King Philip's War and the virtual destruction of the Wampanoags and their allies. The story is told in the alternating voices of a Wampanoag and a pilgrim. This gives youngsters some insight into the misunderstandings that exacerbated the existing differences.

Age/Grade: 7+

Instructional Ideas:
Use in a unit on Colonial America to explore and discuss conflict resolution.
