About this title:
MARY DYER
by Ruth Plimpton

Item price:  $21.95
 
Book Description:
Ruth Plimpton meticulously recounts the story of Mary Dyer, a Quaker, the first woman hanged in Boston because she had different religious beliefs from those of the Puritans. Brash, controversial and contemptuous, she saw no problems abandoning her children to follow George Fox, in England, nor did she mind being tied to a wagon and dragged through Boston to the cheers and harangues of the people. But despite her recalcitrant character, she defiantly stands by the State House in a bronze statue next to Anne Hutchinson, the other Bostonian who fought for religious freedom.
