"Most of the English Colonies in America were founded by people of pure Anglo-Saxon stock, and each colony had usually a religion of its own, with comparatively little intermixture of other faiths. But Pennsylvania was altogether different, and no other colony had such a mixture of languages and nationalities, and religions. The present volume deals with each of these divisions in detail, describes their motives and characteristics, and shows, with more or less completeness, the part each played in making the State."--

Fisher s book is a unique biography of Benjamin Franklin, written by an opinionated man who grew up directly in the wake of Franklin s influence on American culture.--
