Massasoit: A Story of the Indians of New England by Alma H. Burton
The story of the Wampanoag Indians and their dealing with the Indians is told in a manner appropriate for young readers in this charming but tragic book. Massasoit was the Great Sachem of the New England tribe that was most helpful and friendly to the Pilgrims in the early years. Within his lifetime however, the number of white men in the area constantly increased and by the time his son, King Philip, came to rule the tribe, conflict between the settlers and the native Indians was inevitable.
