Product description

Review

"[Vowell''s] a complex blend: part brilliant essayist, part pop-culture-loving comedian and a full-time unabashed history geek. The mixture makes her both proudly pointy-headed and forever entertaining."
-"Seattle Times"

"Sarah Vowell lends her engaging voice and keen powers of observation to a work of social history...Provid[ing] a glimpse of what life was really like for the people of the Massachusetts Bay Colony and the founders of Plymouth."
-"Los Angeles Times"

"Vowell''s words crackle on the printed page...smart, quirky and unabashedly incendiary...Vowell is very funny. She is generous as she wrestles with the moral intricacies of our nation''s beginnings and how Puritan contradictions inform our sense of American exceptionalism today..."The Wordy Shipmates" is more than a punk-ish twist on our brave, verbose, tortured forebears, living in their new colony like ''an ashram in the woods.''"
-"Cleveland Plain Dealer"

"For those of us who''d rather harvest our history lessons from "The Simpsons" than the History Channel, Vowell is a latter-day hero...Fascinating."
-"Elle"

"Vowell...reads history with attitude, humor and sensitivity."
-"Minneapolis Star-Tribune"

"[Vowell exercises] her trademark sweet, silly, arch sense of the incongruous ways we memorialize the American past."
-"Chicago Tribune"
