    Colorful depiction of early life in America

    The writer colorfully depicts what our forebears went through to settle this new land while battling the elements, the harsh landscape and hostile natives. The book focuses on two major areas of early settlement: New England and the Chesapeake region. Both my parents' families came from England in the 1600's -- one family settled in the Chesapeake region (Virginia and southern Maryland), the other in New England. I am working on genealogies of both my families and this book really brought to life their struggles and endurance. So glad they made the effort! I hope to read more works by this author.

    Great little book

    Concentrates on America in the 1600's. Describes the life, customs, beliefs, and attitudes of the people who chose to come to the colonies. Gives details about the types of people who actually came and describes the various success or lack thereof of the new inhabitants. Fascinating to see how the roots of the country developed. Fast read.

    A text book if I ever saw one

    The book read like a text book. Lots of information given over a short period of time. From a information point of view a very good book. From a regular readers point of view, very boring.

    It all fits together

    This book allows the reader to look at the colonization of America from a very open view. Honest and easy to read, I strongly recommend this book!
