Resenhas

Mostly interesting. It focused a lot on trees and individual species of trees and economic possibilities for trees. Which makes sense, I guess, but I think of a forest as an ecosystem, and only one chapter dealt with that point of view. The author literally couldn't see the forest for the trees. But I learned things and it was a fairly good read.

Lots of detail on the years leading up to the U.s. Entering the war.particularly enjoyed the cultural details and the authors own reminisces.

Liked the first had sources that were used. Gave a clear picture of all the forces at work and a feeling for the viewpoints of the loyalists, rebels, hessians, etc

Good for those who want battle details. I enjoyed the occasional letter or diary entry and even a couple of female voices
