Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0976471523, Paperback)January 1676, at the height of King Phillip's War, Joshua Tefft was found guilty of of high treason by the puritan colonies; his sentence, to be hanged, drawn and quartered, the only Englishman in New England to suffer such a fate. What was his crime? Was it because he scalped a miller, or that he fought with the Narragansett Indians and killed a captain in the Connecticut army? Was it because he was a Rhode Islander who fell in love with an Indian maiden, or was it all of the above? Based on a true story, King's Province brings to life New England's painful forgotten past with its intercontinental conflict and religious turmoil. Profusely illustrated with original documents and historical maps, in addition to several 19th century engravings, the story is not just about Joshua Tefft, but about Rhode Island's place in American History as well.
