Jamestown, Quebec, Santa Fe: Three North American Beginnings

Overview


If 1492 began a period of exploration, 1607 inaugurated another momentous chapter in world history–the colonization of America north of Mexico. This process of colonization was not just a westward movement. True, English Jamestown was founded in 1607, but the center of French influence, Quebec, followed the next year, and Santa Fe, the main source of Hispanic culture, came another year later.

Overview


If 1492 began a period of exploration, 1607 inaugurated another momentous chapter in world history–the colonization of America north of Mexico. This process of colonization was not just a westward movement. True, English Jamestown was founded in 1607, but the center of French influence, Quebec, followed the next year, and Santa Fe, the main source of Hispanic culture, came another year later.
Jamestown, Québec, Santa Fe: Three American Beginnings traces the little–known story of the creation of three centers from which English, French, and Spanish influence radiated out into a continent. It shows the English expanding north from Virginia to New England and south to Carolina; the French moving south from the St Lawrence down the Mississippi to Louisiana; and New Mexicans migrating both west and east into Arizona and across the plains of Texas. All three colonies had to deal with native people already there. There were significant commonalities and profound differences in how they interacted with Native Americans, and in their respective political, social, economic, and religious systems. The authors argue convincingly that what happened in the 1600s set in motion many of the forces that have shaped our society ever since and inaugurated some of our nation's enduring challenges: church–state conflict, multiculturalism, participatory politics, economic individualism, racial inequity, and Indian dispossession.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Adult/High School
Four hundred years ago, three settlements were established in North America: by the English at Jamestown in 1607, the French at Quebec in 1608, and the Spanish at Santa Fe in 1609. Each one, though small and extremely fragile at first, survived, expanded, and served a central role in the spread of European culture and influence. This volume serves two purposes well: as a partial catalog of a major traveling exhibit created jointly by the Virginia Historical Society and the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, and as a brief history of the three communities from the planning stages to about 1700. Written in consistently accessible prose and beautifully illustrated in full color with reproductions of maps, paintings, illustrations, documents, and photographs of museum artifacts, the book will appeal to readers who have any curiosity about our nation's past. The authors do an excellent job of identifying the similarities and differences in the establishment of the settlements. They pay special attention to how the Europeans interacted with Native peoples, and how their respective political, economic, social, and religious systems and beliefs influenced the development of the intercultural harmony and disharmony that has shaped our society ever since. The book is thoroughly footnoted, includes an exhibition checklist, and is well indexed. It offers a stunning glimpse into the origins of these settlements.
