Transcending the usual Anglocentric version of our colonial past, he recovers the importance of Native American tribes, African slaves, and the rival empires of France, Spain, the Netherlands, and even Russia in the colonization of North America. Moving beyond the Atlantic seaboard to examine the entire continent, American Colonies reveals a pivotal period in the global interaction of peoples, cultures, plants, animals, and microbes. In a vivid narrative, Taylor draws upon cutting-edge scholarship to create a timely picture of the colonial world characterized by an interplay of freedom and slavery, opportunity and loss.

Excellent history, boring title!
Don't let the title fool you, this an excellent and comprehensive modern take on early American history. Those scope is by intent broad in its multinational and multicultural view of American "colonies," that takes the reader beyond the boundaries of the usual tale to speak of the Caribbean, Canada, and Hawaii and a wide variety of participants from a spectrum of Native American tribes and European colonizers, such as Spain, France, Russia, England and the Netherlands. Interesting thesis. Professionally read.
