Revised ed.

This revised collection of documents provides a large and colorful slice of colonial life between 1608 and 1767, newly augmented with documents on the southern colonies, African Americans, and women.

"These documents have been chosen, in every case, for the way they reflect lived experience among average people in our colonial past. There is no real substitute for such primary evidence -- no other way to capture the feel of events from day to day, year to year, generation to generation." -- from the Preface
