    Sarah Vowell's special brand of armchair history makes the bizarre and esoteric fascinatingly relevant and fun. She takes us from the modern-day reenactment of an Indian massacre to the Mohegan Sun casino, from old-timey Puritan poetry, where "righteousness" is rhymed with "wilderness," to a Mayflower-themed waterslide. Throughout, The Wordy Shipmates is rich in historical fact, humorous insight, and social commentary by one of America's most celebrated voices.

    Overall

    This book was full of stunning research into the foundations of our earliest American ancestors and the motivations that drove them across oceans. The author also caught me by surprise with references to current leaders and politicians that have been cut from the same cloth as their Puritan ancestors. A great book with solid research.
