Comments Every Day Life in the Massachusetts Bay Colony

  • Chris

    Utterly fascinating. This was research for a novel I'm writing, and I loved the trip back to 17th century Boston. Among my favorite chapters? The one on medicine and apothecaries and "chemists." As they say: what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger.


  • Megan

    One of the best non-fiction compositions of day-to-day life of common people that I've ever read. A quick, informative read. I really enjoyed it.


  • Douglas Wilson

    Just great.


  • Helen

    Excellent for genealogical research.


  • Hayley Stone
