Format: Paperback
This is an invaluable collection of primary sources, as the early history of the Colonial Americas is related to us, in their own words, by the people who were there. It isn't just post-Columbian material though - Native American mythology gets a section of its own, and the European accounts begin with the Vikings. The sources speak to us from pre-Colonial days, through the settlement period, to the days of the early Republic - we have Columbus and Powhatan, Winthrop and Washington and Paine.

Anyone with even a passing interest in American history should have this book in their collection. Students of a number of disciplines will find this anthology of sources invaluable, and a handy work of reference which they will keep revisiting. Just try and get it before it goes out of print again, ok?

HASH(0x98d7099c) out of 5 stars Excellent Compilation 24 Sept. 2005
By J. Hurley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This text is an excellent compilation of early American works. Included are various Native American mythologies as well as a variety of other emerging literary voices from the New World. The book also pays special attention to the rising influence and power of Puritans and other religious leaders, as well as several key figures which helped mold the shape of the United States government.
HASH(0x98d70bf4) out of 5 stars Interesting 10 Sept. 2013
By HOwl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was required for my AP Language class. With some help analyzing the texts, I feel that this is truly a wonderful book to have in any collection. There is a short summary and synopsis before each text in this book, which proves useful in providing some in context information.
