5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on Colonial America, period!, 1 Sep 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Albion's Seed: Four British Folkways in America (America: A Cultural History) (Paperback)
A fantastic analysis and synthesis of why we are irretrievably British. I understand my parents attitudes, speech and culture so much better after reading it. My West VA mother actually speaks like he describes. My clansman descended father speaks, acts--IS just like he describes. It has been indispensible in my family history research. So many of my family`s traits and customs are explained as cultural and not just family quirks. I cannot recommend it highly enough. I will eagerly await further works by Fisher

As a Brit this is a very interesting read too, I hadn't really thought about how varied the regions of Britain were in the 1600s and 1700s compared to the more homogenous picture today.
Though the cultural traits (and accents) are still clearly visible in modern Britain, just less so.
