A Basic History of the United States, Vol. 1

The Colonial Experience, 1607–1774

The Basic History of the United States Series: Book #1
By Clarence B. Carson
Narrated by Mary Woods / 7 hours 56 minutes

Carson’s full-scale treatment of American history combines scholarly exactness with evocative passages that lead the listener to a clearer understanding of the people and events, the triumphs and the shortcomings, which have shaped this nation. “For Carson, history is the product of the actions of countless individuals, each under the influence of certain ideas. And Carson explores those ideas, ideologies, and ‘isms.’”—The Freeman

This first volume covers our heritage, our links to England, how the colonies grew, the mighty force of religion in early America, and the oppression felt by the colonists. It describes why our ancestors fought for their beliefs and their efforts to create a government limited in scope by checks and balances so that it would not have the power to oppress the people.
