One of the great short reads by Henry W. Shoemaker. Though many facts in this authors work are not 100% reliable (names and places don't add up always) it is very important that his work has generated much interest in early American history. This book the author does not explain that he at the time of writing this book resided in McElhattan Pa. (A property with the current great misfortune of being currently by a bank due to prior default from the previous owners. this with great unfortunate consequence will lead to its destruction.)
Back to the book it is lesser known by the author as it pertains to specific interest in early crockery of Central Pennsylvania. hidden within this book is a wealth of knowledge, locations where blue pigment was used very early, like Lapis but of an American origin.
Overall I give this book for reference and general historical reference, just confirm facts....
