See The Hannah Dustin Story", and further elaboration.
from Michael Borchart's Dustin page:
"...three renditions of Hannah's story. The first is from "NOTABLE AMERICAN WOMEN 1607-1950". Another version was written by Henry David Thoreau and is found in his book, "A Week on the Concord and Merrimack Rivers". One of my favorite versions, even though it may not be accepted as quite historically-correct, is called "Judging Hannah" by Sybil Smith. This appeared in "Yankee" magazine in January of 1995).
Also included here is historian Cotton Mather's account of Hannah's experience in his "Magnalia Christi Americana; or The Ecclesiastical History of New-England"."
