Description
The colonists who settled the backcountry in 18th-century New England were recruited from the social fringe, people who were desperate for land, autonomy, and respectability and who were willing to make a hard living in a rugged environment. These often disorderly and defiant settlers were drawn to the ideology of the Revolution, which stressed equality, independence, and property rights, although they pushed the emerging nationís political culture in a more radical direction than many of their leaders or the Founding Fathers preferred. Mark Williamsí history gives voice to the settlers, proprietors, and officials of the small colonial settlements that became Granby, Connecticut, and Ashfield, Massachusetts.
