    The history of colonial America is a story of extraordinary scope, with Europeans, Africans, and the native peoples of North America interacting in a drama of settlement and conflict that lasted nearly three centuries. Go back in time and relive this epic story in 36 spellbinding lectures. While concentrating on British North America, Professor Allison also covers developments in the colonial outposts of Spain, France, the Netherlands, and the all-important British possessions in the West Indies, which were the source of the most lucrative crop in the New World - sugar - and the reason for the enormous growth in the slave trade.

    In my room I have an original piece of artwork by Sally Huss which says, "Around me I wear a coat of many colors, fabrics, and textures. It’s made of friends and family here and no longer here, far and not so far. They are all part of my coat which keeps me warm wherever I go." A few summers ago, I noticed a hole in that very coat. One of my best friends developed an eating disorder. As the disorder progressed I knew I needed to find help for her, and fast. I made the decision to approach her, express my concerns, and offer my support. The extraordinary thing is, despite her fears, she put her trust in me and leaned on my shoulder.
