Colonial America to 1763 portrays American history, before there was a United States. European explorers, Native Americans, missionaries, religious and political refugees, and merchant-colonists are just some of the people who helped build this country. This volume concisely details their everyday lives, from the foods they ate to the places where they worshiped to the types of jobs they performed. Numerous statistical tables, charts, maps, photographs, and illustrations enhance the text, while lively, informative essays connect and expand upon the statistical information.
