About this Item

In present-day Minneapolis a graduate student, Karla Palmer, discovers a sermon that was preached at the 1738 hanging of Katherine Garret, a Pequot Indian woman who was executed for the murder of her bastard child. The baby's body was found in the barn of a Congregationalist minister to whom Katherine was bound as a servant. She pled not guilty at her trial and records show that a huge courtroom scene ensued when the verdict was announced. Karla, smelling a cover-up, follows the obscured paper trail into the past, back to the Pequot War, searching for the identity of the person Katherine accused of the murder, for the name of the father, and for who might have conspired to send an innocent woman to the gallows to be "Hanged up by the Neck between the Heavens & the Earth until She be Dead, Dead, Dead." 2003, 51/2x81/2, paper, biblio., vi+227 pp. Bookseller Inventory # 3624
