Synopsis

Voices from Colonial America by Robin S. Doak

Maryland's colonial history is full of surprises, enterprising people, and historic places. A mix of archival images, historic maps, first person accounts, and a lively narrative introduce readers to all this and more as they experience day-to-day life in colonial Maryland.

Reviews

.,. the text provides a well-organized and quite readable account of the colony's history. Discussions of topics such as the Starving Time in Jamestown and the Pocahontas saving John Smith tale reflect current research and thought more closely than many comparable volumes on library shelves.
