Colonial North America (nonfiction)

Best pre-revolutionary, non-fiction histories of European settlement in North America (Canada, USA, Mexico). All European settlements may be included i.e. Spanish, English, Swedish, French, etc.

Biographies of people who lived before and after their country's independence are fine - for example, John Adams or Ben Franklin. Otherwise, please don't add any books written exclusively about the Mexican or American revolutions.

Elyse To the person(s) who added Mistress Firebrand, The Turncoat, and The Rebel Pirate: This list is for non-fiction books and these three books are historical fiction. My apologies but I removed them since they don't fit the parameters.


message 2: by Elyse (new)

Elyse I removed Eaglechild by Victor O'Connell. It is a novel and this is a list of non-fiction books.


message 3: by Elyse (new)

Elyse I am removing 1776 by David McCullough. Great book but it's about America's war for independence. This list is for books when the USA, Mexico, and Canada were still contentedly colonial.


message 4: by Elyse (last edited Apr 06, 2018 08:19PM) (new)

Elyse Removing "An American Plague... 1793". For America, the year 1793 was no longer colonial.
