Bernard Bailyn gives us a compelling account of the first great transit of people from Britain, Europe, and Africa to British North America, their involvements with each other, and their struggles with the indigenous peoples of the eastern seaboard.

After listening to this book, I am starting to realize that Pulitzer Prize-winning histories are hit or miss. The subject of this book could be extremely interesting, but unfortunately Professor Bailyn's delivery is very disjointed and replete with details that keep the listener wondering how the travails of various settlers fit into the larger context of colonization.
