Narratives of Early Maryland 1633-1684
Clayton Colman Hall
There is no more interesting way to study history than by reading the first-hand accounts of the participants. Each of the early writings included in this volume comes with a companion introductory essay and explanatory footnotes. These articles span the gamut from official correspondence to missionary reports to polemical tracts to personal diaries, and cover all manner of descriptions of events during the first fifty years of the Colony. The topics covered range from the flora and fauna of the area to the customs of the Native Americans to the political intrigues of the time. An altogether fascinating volume with a complete index and several illustrations.
