The bold and magnificent dream: America's founding years, 1492-1815
Bruce Catton and his son William B. Catton bring their special flair for analysis, narrative drive, clarity, and precision to this epoch of American history. They examine the complex ideological, economic, and social forces that led to the establishment of European colonies on the North American continent. They vividly describe the vigorous movement to independence, and show how the concepts of human equality and liberty were translated into the formal workings of popular government. Book jacket.
