Summary
Spans more than seven centuries and ranges across North America, Europe, and Africa. Richter recovers the lives of an array of peoples - Indians, Spaniards, French, Dutch, Africans, English - as they struggle with one another and with their own people for control of land and resources. Shows how distinctive patterns of North American culture took shape on a continent where no one yet imagined there would be nations called the United States, Canada, or Mexico
