With America's founding principles being debated today as never
before, Russell 'shorto looks back to the era in which those
principles were forged. Drawing on new sources, he weaves the lives of
six people into a seamless narrative that casts fresh light on the
range of experience in colonial America on the cusp of revolution.
While some of the protagonists--a Native American warrior, a British
aristocrat, George Washington--play major roles on the field of
battle, others--a woman, a slave, and a laborer--struggle no less
valiantly to realize freedom for themselves.
