Overview

Touted as an American Eden during the colonial era, Kentucky provides one of the most dramatic social histories of early America.

In this collection, ten contributors trace the evolution of Kentucky from First West to Early Republic. Here are the stories of its remarkable settlers and inhabitants: Indians, African Americans, working-class men, tenants and farmers. The world that this diverse group of people made was both a society uniquely Kentuckian and a microcosm of the American pageant unfolding during these years.

An unusual blend of social, economic, political, cultural, and religious history, this volume goes a long way toward answering the question posed by Virginia clergyman in 1775: "What a buzzel is this amongst people about Kentuck?"
