American Colonies

The Settling of North America (The Penguin History of the United States, Volume 1)

Alan Taylor

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

With this volume, Alan Taylor challenges the traditional story of colonial history by examining the many cultures that helped make America. Transcending the usual Anglocentric version of our colonial past, he recovers the importance of Native American tribes, African slaves, and the rival empires of France, Spain, the Netherlands, and even Russia in the colonization of North America. Moving beyond the Atlantic seaboard to examine the entire continent, American Colonies reveals a pivotal period in the global interaction of peoples, cultures, plants, animals, and microbes. In a vivid narrative, Taylor draws upon cutting-edge scholarship to create a timely picture of the colonial world characterized by an interplay of freedom and slavery, opportunity and loss.

I had to read this book for AP US History and to my surprise this book was very clear to read and understandable. I highly suggest you read this book if you love history and how our great nation began.

This is a wonderful, concise and unbiased account of the founding of all the American colonies; from the prehistoric Paleo-Indian to the American Revolution.
