    Nearly 40 years ago, a New York State Library archivist discovered 12,000 pages of extraordinary records from the original Dutch colony on Manhattan. After decades of painstaking translation, the documents became the primary source for this breathtaking history of early New York.

    Pen Name says: "Loved it!"
    "Very Cool History Lesson!"
    Overall

    This was an excellent book that was thoroughly researched, which I applaud. The history was fascinating, rich in new content and truly helped the reader understand the roots of American culture. It made me appreciate the origin of the "melting pot" of cultures and acceptance that thrive in NYC today and make our country so unique. It is true the "winners write the history books", so I am thankful for the clarification. I recommend this book to anyone from NY, New England, with a Dutch heritage and/or anyone who appreciates understanding the social roots of this great country.
