America free download The Island at the Center of the World: The Epic Story of Dutch Manhattan and the Forgotten Colony That Shaped America ᙺ Book Author Russell Shorto ᝹ In a landmark work of history, Russell Shorto presents astonishing information on the founding of our nation and reveals in riveting detail the crucial role of the Dutch in making America what it is today In the late 1960s, an archivist in the New York State Library made an astounding discovery 12,000 pages of centuries old correspondence, court cases, legal contracts, and reports from a forgotten society the Dutch colony centered on Manhattan, which predated the 13 original American colonies For the past 30 years, scholar Charles Gehring has been translating this trove, which was recently declared a national treasure Now Russell Shorto has made use of this vital material to construct a sweeping narrative of Manhattan s founding that gives a startling, fresh perspective on how America began In an account that blends a novelist s grasp of storytelling with cutting edge scholarship, The Island at the Center of the World strips Manhattan of its asphalt, bringing us back to a wilderness island a hunting ground for Indians, populated by wolves and bears that became a prize in the global power struggle between the English and the Dutch Indeed, Russell Shorto shows that America s founding was not the work of English settlers alone but a result of the clashing of these two 17th century powers In fact it was Amsterdam Europe s most liberal city, with an unusual policy of tolerance and a polyglot society dedicated to free trade that became the model for the city of New Amsterdam on Manhattan While the Puritans of New England were founding a society based on intolerance, on Manhattan the Dutch created a free trade, upwardly mobile melting pot that would help shape not only New York but America The story moves from the halls of power in London and The Hague to bloody naval encounters on the high seas The characters in the saga the men and women who played a part in Manhattan s founding range from the philosopher Rene Descartes to James, the Duke of York, to prostitutes and smugglers At the heart of the story is a bitter power struggle between two men Peter Stuyvesant, the autocratic director of the Dutch colony and a forgotten American hero named Adriaen van der Donck, a maverick, liberal minded lawyer whose brilliant political gamesmanship, commitment to individual freedom, and exuberant love of his new country would have a lasting impact on the history of
