9780140390872: Early American Writing (Penguin Classics)

Drawing materials from journals and diaries, political documents and religious sermons, prose and poetry, this book explores American myths of origin. The book includes American legends explaining the origins of the world, narratives of discovery by Columbus and Vespucci, and visions of a new paradise sketched by naturalists and other writers. Early settlers chronicle the establishment of a new society, and other selections offer insights into the foundation of the republic and reflect often contradictory views of both the problems and promise of the new nation.
