The Wampanoag have lived on the northeastern coast for possibly thousands of years. They were one of the first native peoples encountered by the pilgrims when they arrived in the 1600s. While the Wampanoag helped the new arrivals, they found themselves in clashes with the English in later years. One of the most notable conflicts was King Philip's War from 1675 to 1676. This book provides a fascinating look at the traditions and beliefs of the Wampanoag people as well as a glimpse into the life of the Wampanoag today. Book jacket.
