'Captors and Captives'
At the urging of an acquaintance, I've read 'Captors and Captives.'
Verdict: Terrific history of the 1704 Deerfield Raid, with the Queen Anne's War
as a backdrop. As I've noted before, I'm on a sort of pre-American Revolution binge these days, trying to piece together what for me has been a rather murky history of early colonial life in America and New England. 'Captors and Captives' picked up nicely where 'Mayflower'
left off. ... If anyone has good book recommendations for the Salem witch trials, pass 'em along. That's another colonial area I'd like to explore more. ... Two other books I'd recommend to those interested in pre-Revolution colonial America: 'White Devils'
and 'Crucible of War.'
They're both about the French and Indian War, the former about another famous raid and the latter a more sweeping history.Update
