English Colonies In America (We the People)

by Rebecca Love Fishkin

Seeking to compete with its rivals Spain and France for a presence in North America, England established its first settlement in Jamestown, Virginia, in 1607. England wanted permanent colonies for long-term wealth, as well as a place to send people who disagreed with the king's religion and politics. England's 13 North American colonies were established over a period of 126 years. Though all were clustered along the Atlantic coast, they supported different types of lifestyles based on factors such as geography and religion. Though different, the colonies eventually united in their anger toward repressive English rule, igniting the revolution that led to the formation of the United States of America.

English Fairy Tales

Purchase one of 1st World Library's Classic Books and help support our free internet library of downloadable eBooks. Visit us online at www. 1stWorldLibrary. ORG - - Who says that English folk have no fairy-tales of their own? The present volume contains only a selection out of some 140, of which I have found traces in this country. It is probable that many more exist. A quarter of the tales in this volume, have been collected during the last ten years or so, and some of them have not been hitherto published. Up to 1870 it was equally said of France and of Italy, that they possessed no folk-tales. Yet, within fifteen years from that date, over 1000 tales had been collected in each country. I am hoping that the present volume may lead to equal activity in this country, and would earnestly beg any reader of this book who knows of similar tales, to communicate them, written down as they are told, to me, care of Mr. Nutt. The only reason, I imagine, why such tales have not hitherto been brought to light, is the lamentable gap between the governing and recording classes and the dumb working classes of this country - dumb to others but eloquent among themselves. It would be no unpatriotic task to help to bridge over this gulf, by giving a common fund of nursery literature to all classes of the English people, and, in any case, it can do no harm to add to the innocent gaiety of the nation.

Cartoon illustrations, fun facts, and interviews with successful entrepreneurs make Entrepreneurship entertaining and informative.
