Description
In 1682, Quaker William Penn established the "holy experiment"—the colony of Pennsylvania, where white settlers and Native Americans could co-exist peacefully. Penn's sons shared none of his idealism, nor did the settlers known as the Paxton Boys, who resorted to murdering the Native Americans in order to take their land. As Kevin Kenny's history shows, the greed and aggression of the Paxtons became the norm, greatly influencing future relations between the colonists and America's original inhabitants.

"A compelling study of the Paxton Boys' massacre of Conestoga Indians and of the volatile world that produced it. Grounding his story in the context of the French and Indian War and the escalating ethnic, social, and political tensions of 18th-century Pennsylvania, Kevin Kenny shows how William Penn's utopian dream of a peaceable kingdom degenerated into a nightmare of racial violence."—Colin G. Calloway
