The first installment of a trilogy - from the origins of the English expansion under Henry VIII to the founding of the United States to the rollicking election of President Andrew Jackson - rescues myth from oblivion the brave, brilliant, and flawed people who made America great: women & men, native-born and immigrant; German, Latin, African, and British; as well as farmers, engineers, planters, and merchants; Protestants, Freemasons, Catholics, and Jews - and last but not least - the American scofflaws, speculators, rogues, and demagogues. Notes, Index. 638p.
