The Colonizers The Colonizers

Early European Settlers and the Shaping of North America

by Stiles, T.J.

From Champlain’s daring voyages through Canada to the pious settlements of the Pilgrims and Puritans, from the commercial enterprises of Dutch New Amsterdam to the plantation society of Virginia, the rise of colonial North America emerges in vivid detail in this lively, innovative new history. Here are the clashes of the empires, as English, French, Dutch, and Spanish battled for land; the friction of customs and beliefs between settlers of various nations; the struggles of dissidents, captives, and slaves; and the experience of the Indian nations – as victims, conquerors, and allies in the wars of the European kingdoms.
