Synopsis

Philadelphia by Shane Mountjoy

Using a debt owed by King Charles II, William Penn traded away a fortune in order to acquire an American colony. He could have become even wealthier from his land, but instead he used his colony to establish a place of safety for religiously oppressed people from throughout Europe. Within his colony, Penn planted a great city - Philadelphia. Photographs, sidebars, and a chronology are some of the useful tools featured that help bring this city's dynamic history to life.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
