LibriVox recording of A Narrative of the Captivity and Restoration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson, by Mary Rowlandson. Read by Matthew Scott Surprenant. This is the story of Mary Rowlandson’s capture by American Indians in 1675. It is a blunt, frightening, and detailed work with several moments of off-color humor. Mary, the wife of a minister, was captured by Natives during King Philips War while living in a Lancaster town, most of which was decimated, and the people murdered. See through her eyes,...
