Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "Esmond Wright's Search for Liberty is all that we have come to expect from the author of many books - wonderful skills of synthesis and narrative history, noted for his wit and wisdom. Although Wright is respectful of new methodologies, he is not governed by them, for he is at heart a storyteller, whose deft portraits of heroes and villains, as well of great historians such as Francis Parkman and S. E. Morison, add to this richly textured fabric of early American history." Professor Don Higginbotham, The University of North Carolina "This will be a truly outstanding series. Wright's history is a smooth-flowing mix of narration of events, bibliographic essays, biographical sketches, and balanced examination of conflicting theories on disputed historical activities. Overall, a highly reasonable work that should stimulate anyone who reads it." Choice. Codice inventario libreria
Riassunto: This is a history of the region now known as the United States of America, from earliest times to the American victory over the British and the Declaration of Independence in 1776. The book charts the arrival of the first Americans through Alaska, millennia before the coming of the Norsemen, or of Cabot, Columbus and Raleigh. It tells of the sixteenth century incursions by the Spanish, French and English, their interaction with the American Indians, and describes the early settlements, their culture, activities and trade. The author traces the rise to dominance of the British settlers, and the establishment of the whole of east America within the British Empire. The book closes with an account of the war with the British and of Washington's final triumph.
