New England Frontier: Puritans and Indians 1620-1675, by historian Alden T Vaughan is an informative book based on some puritans Ideals Back in 1965, when the book was published many people still had different views upon what occurred in the Puritan and Indian period Because of this, the purpose of Vaughan, when writing this book was to gather as much information as possible and explain the both sides of the story His main topic was to give the Puritan image on the relations of the encounters they had with the Native Americans, Little, Brown and Co, Boston, Toronto, 1965.
