Summary
  • Examines the motivations, ideals, and spiritual and material impulses of the early settlers of the United States, and discusses how the American character was formed and has persisted throughout American history, from colonial times up to the present
  • "As America undergoes global scrutiny, acclaimed novelist Russell Banks contemplates the questions of our origins, values, heroes, conflicts, and contradictions. He writes with conversational ease and emotional insight, drawing on contemporary politics, literature, film, and his knowledge of American history. Banks shows how the differing motives of the first colonists, the influence of slavery and African-American culture, and the intermingling of destructive and creative forces have changed us."--BOOK JACKET
