This book depicts a continent emerging as both a bloody battleground between Native Americans and Europeans and a place where alien cultures began to mesh. This is the history they left out of the textbooks--thanks to Cormac O'Brien, the forgotten history of America will be forgotten no more.
From the founding of the first permanent European settlement in North America (1565) to the bloody chaos of the British frontier in Pontiac's War (1763), this vividly written narrative spans the two centuries of American history before the Revolutionary War. These lesser known conflicts of the past are brought brilliantly to life, showing us a world of heroism, brutality, and tenacity--and also showing us how deep the roots of our own time truly run.
