Publisher's Summary

Like all good awakenings and revolutions, the Great Awakening and the American Revolution started with a good conversation. But when, and with whom, did that good conversation start?

New England Transcendentalism started somewhere, but where and how? The seed of Civil Disobedience was planted by someone in Massachusetts, but by who and why?

In the polemic spirit of Jane Anger’s The Protection for Women, we publish The Worming of America, as a rebuttal to Joseph Swetnam’s novel published in 1615 titled The Arraignment of Lewd, Idle, Forward, and Unconstant Women: Or the Vanity of Them, Choose You Whether: With a Commendation of Wise, Virtuous and Honest Women: Pleasant For Married Men, Profitable for Young Men, and Hurtful to None.

Author Autumn Leaf, in the spring of 1650 Boston, shares her thoughts, her joy, and pain with you, the listener, for over four hours on the morning of the first of June as she discusses her own, and her Boston classmates', "good-work" before they go to the execution of Marv Dyer. Our American journey will be filled with ups and downs and twists and turns - where our own ideas of civilization, religion, sin, debt, and humanity are questioned.

The sun will shine tomorrow even as you listen to this dark comedy, and, for better or worse, the truth will be felt and laid bare in the American sunlight. Not because we live within our Fathers’ Age of Reason, no...quite the opposite. The Worming of America will be heard in 2018, and beyond, because America now lives in the age of treason.

Brave new voice from early American History

Exquisite story-telling from one of the best voices in an audio book I have ever heard - Keith O'Brian is a master story teller.

This book opens up a fresh new voice that finally deserves to be heard.
So often when hearing a story from this period, the female voices are limited to a narrow category (witch trials).

The Worming of America, also about a trial, creates a world from the eyes of Libertarian females, Mary Dyer and Anne Hutchinson, told through her daughter, Autumn Leaf.

In the Bronx, above NYC is the Hutchinson Parkway, and it was in this area where Anne was killed, her daughter Susan was witness. WItness to her entire family's slaughter. Then Susan was taken to a new culture, where she was raised, and then returned to Boston society.

This book is very relevant to questions of today, and raises important questions about one's "place in society." And questions about stepping out of that place to become a better woman and and a better American.

Highly recommended read!
