Anotace:

From the author of the "New York Times" bestseller "Assassination Vacation" comes an examination of the Puritans, their covenant communities, deep-rooted idealism, political and cultural relevance, and their myriad oddities.

To this day, America views itself as a Puritan nation, but author Vowell investigates what that means--and what it should mean. What was this great political enterprise all about? Who were these people who are considered the philosophical, spiritual, and moral ancestors of our nation? What Vowell discovers is something far different from what their uptight shoe-buckles-and-corn reputation might suggest. The people she finds are highly literate, deeply principled, and surprisingly feisty. Their story is filled with pamphlet feuds, witty courtroom dramas, and bloody vengeance.--From publisher description.

Reading history doesn't have to be a snore!

od zbriceno (Publikoval uživatel WorldCat 2010-02-16) Skvělé Trvalý odkaz

The Wordy Shipmates is well worth reading. This hilarious, yet informative peek into the creation of a colony, had made me want to learn more about the founding of the United States.
