Originally published in 1666, written by John Eliot, a Puritan minister who went to America to escape religious persecution and found himself learning the native Massachusett language, creating a written language, articulating grammatical rules, and finally translating the bible into the native language. This is the grammar he created. It is hoped that by bringing the book back in print, that a language long lost will again be spoken and written.
