Review quote

Recommended. CHOICE The strength of Colonial Chesapeake lies in its diversity, with each piece in some measure bringing fresh questions, unconventional sources, or innovative methodology to bear on an aspect of the Chesapeake region's rich history. William and Mary Quarterly Over the last thirty years historians of the Colonial Chesapeake have revolutionized the way that scholars think about early America; this book makes it clear that there is still much more to learn. The essays in this collection offer a wide variety of approaches that collectively re-envision the Colonial Chesapeake as a more culturally diverse and complicated place. The format of this volume combines concise essays based on original research with fascinating selections from primary sources, making it especially well-suited for teaching. -- Bradford J. Wood, Author, This Remote Part of the World: Regional Formation in Lower Cape Fear North Carolina, 1725-1775
