Pressestimmen"This volume is the first close study of American colonials' beliefs and practices that spans the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. While deeply empirical, it also situates colonials within the larger Atlantic context." - Philip J. Pauly, author of Fruits and Plains: Horticulture and the Transformation of North America"
