Metamora or the Last of the Wampanoags, 1829, a play by John Augustus Stone, is an early 19th century Native American Indian tragedy.

Historically based on King Philip’s War (1675-76), this heartrending drama depicts the clash of cultures between newly arrived English settlers and the Wampanoag civilization of New England.

Metamora, chieftain of a doomed people, seeks only fair treatment but exacts a bitter revenge when his trust is betrayed. Actor Edwin Forrest launched his lucrative career playing the title role, while the playwright died young and impoverished.

Did you know? November is National Native American Heritage Month.

Introduction by Walter J. Meserve. Cover design and book layout by Mollie Ann Meserve. The paperback book is comb bound, with a clear plastic cover over paper. It measures approximately 8-1/2" x 5-3/4".
