    1. Virtually everything was new information to me, possibly because I wasn't a fan of paying attention in history class, and events I'd heard of, I learned what (at least according to Mr. Wright and his various references) led to said catastrophes (or minor disturbances). That's good. I like pretending I'm learning. The beginning was exciting, what with these crazy seamen departing from respective homelands with every intention of returning within five years. Except for the crazy seamen who died fr [...]


    2. Wright Has Done Right on Early American HistoryThis book deserves a permanent shelf spot in any colonial American history buff's library. Within its thorough historical narrative, it is rich in information that can help researchers understand the foundations of American interests, values, perspectives, contradictions, issues and political dramas. My only regret is that the book lacks footnotes or an addendum to point to those insights. Without such, to the lay reader, the book risks becoming jus [...]


    3. This book was not at all what I was lead to believe it would be like from the write up. I thought it would be a lot more interesting with little facts that we did not learn in school. Well they were there but the book was so dull and dry with all kinds of names and dates it was like reading your high school text book for American History class. I was disappointed.


    4. Colonial Deep DiveA well crafted, well written book taking the reader from the earliest European efforts to colonize the New World right up to the beginnings of the American Revolution. It provides the reader interested in colonial/ revolutionary periods in American history much greater detail on the activities of the colonists during the 200 years prior to the Revolution.


    5. This is a book covering the pre-history of the United States. The book provides the historic background that led to the European age of exploration, and then after covering this period starts to focus on the activities located in the currents USA. While reading the book, I couldn’t help wish that the school books I was forced to read on this topic were as interesting. In many ways, it did feel as if this book was an easy reading history text for a US based history course. If anything, it made [...]


    6. Clear and concise a good summary.The book was fairly well-written concise a good history of the pre-revolution colonial society that shows the interconnectedness of the colonies as they were being founded. It also manages to cover the French and Indian war and a very concise and clear manner that steered clear of privilege details . If you want a good bare-bones history of pre-revolution colonial society this is a good book.


    7. Extremely detailed history of North America from the arrival of colonialists in South America to the eve of war with Britain. A little bit of a slog at times - occasionally I felt like the author wanted to mention every person to have lived in the colonies - but a lot of interesting detail I did not know. Not sure I would recommend other than to history buffs.


    8. Kindle Book Can Not Be FinishedIn order to complete this book I am required to rate it with a 20 word minimum description. This is stupid.
