Title Profile & Character Information

The Barbarous Years

Annotation
Multi-award-winning historian Bailyn shows that the settlement of British North America was not one of humanitys more glorious moments. As folks poured in from Britain, the Continent, and Africa, bringing with them the culture and class structure of their particular regions, violence often resulted-not simply between indigenous peoples and settlers or settlers and those they enslaved but among various groups of settlers themselves. An eye-opener.
