hardcover.

from the inside sleeve:
To this day, America views itself as a Puritan nation, but Vowell investigates what that means - and what it should mean. What was this great political enterprise all about? Who were these people who are considered the philosophical, spiritual, and moral ancestors of our nation? What Vowell discovers is something far different from what their uptight shoe-buckles-and-corn reputation might suggest. The people she finds are highly literate, deeply principled, and surprisingly feisty. Their story is filled with pamphlet feuds, witty courtroom dramas, and bloody vengeance.

Very enjoyable! I laughed out loud several times (reading a book about Puritans, no less!), yet Vowell can also be serious and I managed to learn some more about history along the way. Recommended!
