The Sovereignty and Goodness of God: With Related Documents by Neal Salisbury

Mary Rowlandson’s The Sovereignty and Goodness of God, first published in 1682, is an English Puritan woman’s account of her captivity among Native Americans during King Philip’s, or Metacom’s, War (1675-76) in southeastern New England. In this new edition, 21 related documents support Rowlandsons text, which is reprinted from the earliest surviving edition of the narrative. Neal Salisbury’s revised introduction reflects the changes in scholars’ understandings of issues relating to Rowlandson’s captivity and her narrative that have occurred in the twenty years since the publication of the first edition. Five new related documents include a little-known narrative of Muslim captivity by a Puritan contemporary of Rowlandson’s, a treaty that exhibits the motives of both English and Native American signers, an account of the forced removal of Christian Indians to Deer Island during Metacom’s War, and two visual documents. The volume’s document headnotes, footnotes, and appendices have been thoroughly revised in light of recent research and interpretations.

By Mrs. Mary Rowlandson

Mary White Rowlandson was a colonial American woman who was captured during an attack by Native Americans during King Philip's War and held ransom for 11 weeks and 5 days. It is a work in the literary genre of captivity narratives. It is considered to be one of America's first bestsellers, four editions appearing in when it was first published. The Native Americans burned down houses and opened fire on the English settlers, killing several of them and wounding more. They took many of the survivors captive, including Mary Rowlandson and her three children. Mary and her youngest child were among the injured, while others of her family, including her brother-in-law, were killed.

The sovereignty and goodness of GOD, together with the faithfulness of his promises displayed, being a narrative of the captivity and restoration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson, commended by her, to all that desires to know the Lord's doings to, and dealings with her. Especially to her dear children and relations. The second Addition [sic] Corrected and amended. Written by her own hand for her private use, and now made public at the earnest desire of some friends, and for the benefit of the afflicted.
