The First Frontier: Life in Colonial America / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
A vivid recreation of the varied ways in which colonists lived. Bustling seaport towns, lonely farming valleys and forest frontiers come alive through the words of contemporary observers. Their humorous, sometimes piously pompous comments on courtship, marriage, children, education, religion, crime and punishment, and slavery provide rich insights into colonial America. Originally published in 1966 by Dell Publishing Company.
