Journey back to a little-known moment in colonial history that changed the course of America’s future. In Terror to the Wicked, author Tobey Pearl provides a riveting account of a brutal killing, an all-out manhunt, and America’s first murder trial, of a white runaway servant who stabbed a Nipmuc tribesman in Plymouth Colony in 1638. Set against the backdrop of the Pequot War between the Pequot tribe and the colonists of Massachusetts Bay, this work of history brings to vivid life those caught up in the drama including Roger Williams, founder of Providence, Rhode Island; Myles Standish; Edward Winslow, a former governor of Plymouth Colony; and John Winthrop, governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony. Ms. Pearl’s revelatory account sheds new light on America’s early history, the end of the two-year war and the peace that allowed the colonies to become a nation.
