The Way We Were
It's been a while since we had a reading group discussion. Rick and I thought it would be fun to read Alan Taylor's American Colonies given the renewed interest by National Geographic in the Pilgrims' story. Taylor offers a broad history of colonization in America from the early Spanish consequences to the settlements along the West Coast in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The arrival of the Pilgrims is told in Chapter 9: Puritans and Natives.
Here's a review of the book from the New York Times. We welcome all readers and look forward to an engaging discussion.
