Written by one of Hutchinson's direct descendants, American Jezebel brings both balance and perspective to Hutchinson's story. The book narrates her dramatic expulsion from Massachusetts and settlement in Rhode Island. American Jezebel illuminates the origins of our modern concepts of religious freedom, equal rights, and free speech, and showcases an extraordinary woman whose achievements are astonishing by the standards of any era.
