974.8 WAL (Ligonier Valley Library) (I read in January 2010)
Excellent book, hits on many themes, from background on Pennsylvania founder William Penn, through colonial struggles, Revolution and industrial revolution.
The extensive coverage of William Penn should be taught in all states. His legal reputation would have made him an historical figure even if he had never founded Pennsyvania. His defense of an imprisoned jury in 1780 established legal protections for jury members.
Penn was THE Founding Father. His "Framework for Government" experiment was a major stepping stone to the United States Constitution.
