The American Puritan movement is the essential starting point for all considerations of American culture and no book in print provides a better introduction to it than does this one. -- Larzer ZiffFrom the Publisher:
Perry Miller's classic one-volume anthology of Puritan writings recreates the world of seventeenth-century New England through a judicious selection of tracts, journals, sermons, and poetry by the major Puritan writers: William Bradford, Cotton Mather, John Winthrop, Thomas Hooker, Anne Bradstreet, Michael Wigglesworth, and Edward Taylor among them.
