Indians, too, could play the land game for both personal and political benefit

John Wompas was, by the account of his kin, "no sachem," although he claimed that status to achieve his economic and political ends. His efforts, including visiting and securing the assistance of King Charles II, were instrumental in preserving his homeland when he went before the Crown and used the knowledge acquired in his English education to defend the land and rights of his fellow Nipmucs. Jenny Hale Pulsipher's biography offers a window onto seventeenth-century New England and the Atlantic world from the unusual perspective of an American Indian who, though he may not have been what he claimed, was certainly out of the ordinary. Drawing on documentary and anthropological sources as well as consultation with Native people, Pulsipher shows how Wompas turned the opportunities and hardships of economic, cultural, religious, and political forces in the emerging English empire to the benefit of himself and his kin.
