The Same Great Struggle: The History of the Vickery Family of Unity, Maine, 1634-1997
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungWith the story of one American family--the Vickerys of Unity, Maine--Andrea Hawkes tells the history of our country and explores the power of connections, beginning with the first generation of Vickerys from England who founded Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1634, then following the fifth generation to the District of Maine just before the American Revolution as they extended the family network from Cape Elizabeth, east to Calais, and north to Unity where succeeding generations thrived for the next two hundred years. In the late 1800s the ninth generation of Vickerys expanded the family network to the Montana and Wyoming borderlands, and their stories of pioneer ranching and mining mirror the entrepreneurial spirit of their colonial ancestors, Hawkes keeps a keen historian's eye on the facts while weaving a fascinating tale.
