520    "In Between two worlds, historian Malcolm Gaskill tells 
       the sweeping story of the English experience in America 
       during the first century of colonization. Following a 
       large and varied cast of visionaries and heretics, 
       merchants and warriors, and slaves and rebels, Gaskill 
       illuminates the often traumatic challenges the settlers 
       faced. The first waves sought to re-create the English way
       of life, even to recover a society that was vanishing at 
       home. But they were thwarted at every turn by the perils 
       of a strange continent, unaided by monarchs who first 
       ignored and then exploited them. As these colonists strove
       to leave their mark on the New World, they were forced -- 
       by hardship and hunger, by illness and infighting, and by 
       bloody and desperate battles with Indians -- to innovate 
       and adapt, or perish. As later generations acclimated to 
       the wilderness, they recognized that they had evolved into
       something distinct: no longer just English in America, 
       they were perhaps not even English at all" -- Publisher's 
       description.
