In this book, author Ted Lamont asks us to reconsider our country's formative years, and explore the stories, lives, achievements, and failures of America'ss earliest founding fathers: those who paved the way for the Colonial Era, and the American Revolution. They were explorers, investors, passionate religious leaders, and determined developers who struggled for generations to successfully plant the English flag in this strange new soil ... The infancy of America--from Roanoke'ss founding in 1585 through the firm establishment of Jamestown and Plymouth in 1625--i2s where we first see planted the seeds of the rest of America'ss colonial, economic, political, and cultural history.--Provided by publisher
