In this book, Cedric Cowing demonstrates that there were two Englands, one evangelistic and one rationalistic. In the Northwest of the British Isles was a society that was pastoral, westering, and otherworldly---in the Southeast was another, more established and mercantile. The settlers' British origins and the fact that these two religious types inhabited specific regions of New England influenced American history through the 1800s and beyond.
