Riassunto: This is an epic history of North America's oldest city. In its 400 years, St. John's has been molded by stoic fishermen, intrepid aviators, brilliant statesmen, devoted clerics, brave social reformers and hard working business people. O'Neill's highly readable work also includes rapacious merchants, destructive fires, shameless politicians, religious bigots and warriors from many nations. In his meticulously researched book, O'Neill illustrates the people and events that have made St. John's a truly unique city on the North American landscape. The Oldest City brings together the many pieces that comprise the history of St. John's: its pioneers, larger-than-life characters, and the hard working people who built the foundations of its economy and culture.
