9780792266808: Voices from Colonial America: New Jersey: 1609-1776 (National Geographic Voices from ColonialAmerica)

Eye-catching graphics and engaging narrative create a compelling picture of life in colonial New Jersey. Originally settled by the Dutch as part of their "New Netherland," New Jersey did not flourish as a colony until it came under British control in 1664. Readers will learn how the promise of political and religious freedom led to its becoming the first Quaker colony in America and one of the most ethnically diverse. They'll learn how, for a while, it was divided into East and West Jersey, how it had its own version of the Boston Tea Party, and how its location between New York City and Philadelphia made it the site of nearly 100 battles during the struggle for independence that eventually led to its becoming the nation's third state.

About the Author:

Robin Doak is a writer of fiction and nonfiction books for children, ranging from elementary to high school levels. Subjects she has written about include American immigration, the 50 states, American presidents, and U.S. geography. Doak is a former editor of Weekly Reader and has also written numerous support guides for educators. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, with an emphasis on journalism, from the University of Connecticut and lives near her alma mater in Portland.

From Booklist:

Gr. 5-8. Presented in clear, succinct text, this history of New Jersey stretches from the early Dutch, Swedish, and English settlements through the Revolutionary War and the adoption of the Constitution, Doak discusses political history (for 26 years East and West New Jersey were separate colonies); religion, especially the Quaker influence; and life for both European immigrants and indigenous peoples. He also touches upon the role of indentured servants, redemptioners, and slaves, as well as New Jersey's key location between New York City and Philadelphia. Historical maps, reprints of period artwork, and first-person accounts are folded into each chapter, but they don't disturb the narrative flow. Appended with a time line, a bibliography, and source notes, this resource, containing a great deal of information, will be a welcome addition to history classes and a great source for report writers. Other titles in the Voices from Colonial America series cover the other original colonies, plus Texas, California, Florida, Louisiana, and New France. Kay Weisman
