The beginners of a nation; a history of the source and rise of the earliest English settlements in America, with special reference to the life and character of the people by Edward Eggleston ( Book )
50 editions published between 1809 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
American novelist and historian, Eggleston's novels depicting early life in southern Indiana have been widely read. In this book his aim has been to make the pages reflect the character of the age in which the English colonies were begun, and the traits of the colonists, and to bring into relief the social, political, intellectual, and religious forces that promoted emigration. It does not pretend to be the usual account of all the events attending early colonization; it is rather a history in which the succession of cause and effect is the main topic, a history of the dynamics of colony-planting in the first half of the seventeenth century. Who were the beginners of English life in America? What propulsions sent them for refuge to a wilderness? What visions beckoned them to undertake the founding of new states? What manner of men were their leaders? And what is the story of their hopes, their experiments, and their disappointments? These are the questions Eggleston attempts to answer in this volume. - Publisher

Eggleston was born in Vevay, Indiana. As a child, he was too ill to regularly attend school, so his education was primarily provided by his father. He became an ordained Methodist minister in 1856. His summer home, Owl's Nest, in Lake George, New York, eventually became his year-round home. Eggleston died there in 1902, at the age of 64. Owl's Nest was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1971
