American colonial history with a twist

American Colonial History: Clashing Cultures and FaithsAmerican Colonial History: Clashing Cultures and Faiths by Thomas S. Kidd
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kidd gives a concise but rich narrative of colonial history, focusing, as the subtitle suggests, on religious and cultural tensions. The attention paid to the interaction between various colonial and Native American groups was a real strength that gave the book a different feel than other overviews of the colonial period. Kidd also included the Spanish and French colonial efforts in areas that would become part of the United States.
