Compare And Contrast Mary Rowlandson And William Bradford

Hello Destiny,
I enjoyed your post and your descriptions of the various authors and their writings. In my post I chose to compare and contrast Mary Rowlandson, John Smith, St. John de Crevecoeur and avoided William Bradford because like you I found his writing difficult to follow. I found Mary’s story interesting as well, her descriptions about her capture and imprisonment were vivid and striking in their straightforwardness. She leaves little doubt about her thoughts and feelings about the "merciless heathens" (Rowlandson, 74-75) who abducted her. But my take on St. John de Crevecoeur attitude toward the Native Americans seems to be different from yours as I focused on other aspects of his writings and judged him to be generally positive
