about

While the true direction of the Transpontine Series is to get to the heart of US history, this second book starts off with the 80 or so years of exploration and colonisation that led to the first attempts by the English to gain a foothold in North America. It will look at how the first (very much illegal) English bible sparked a religious protest movement that gave us separatist puritans and pilgrims. It then dives right in to the founding of James-towne, Virginia and the first uniquely American-English words, including loanwords from local tribes and the formation of new compounds and meanings to describe the environment of North America. 

The book then looks at early colonial settlement by the English right up to the Mayflower, Plymouth settlement and concludes with a launching of more colonies in Jamestown, Plymouth Colony, New England by the Massachusetts Bay Company, New France and New Netherlands.
