Voyagers to the West : Emigration from B. Bookseller Inventory #
Synopsis: Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the Saloutos Prize of the Immigration History Society
Bailyn's Pulitzer Prize-winning book uses an emigration roster that lists every person officially known to have left Britain for America from December 1773 to March 1776 to reconstruct the lives and motives of those who emigrated to the New World.
"Voyagers to the West is a superb book. . . . It should be equally admired by and equally attractive to the general reader as to the professional historian."—R.C. Simmons, Journal of American Studies
From the Back Cover: "These two volumes [The Peopling Of British North America: An Introduction And Voyagers To The West] bring to a triumphant culmination not only a distinguished career but some of the best work of an entire generation of American historians .... He wants to come closer than any predecessor to a comprehensive account of immigration to British North America -- the origins, the motives, the experience -- and these volumes persuade me that he has succeeded....Bailyn has inaugurated one of the most important historical works of the last thirty years."
-- David Levin, The Nation
"A grandly conceived attempt to employ the newest techniques of historical research (notably computerized demographic analysis) to achieve an old purpose: the recovery of a people's mentality from beneath the layers of myth and received opinion that have obscured it....[Votagers To The West] is conceived on an epic scale and executed with heroic determination."
-- Andrew Delbanco, New Republic
"Voyagers To The West is a superb book.... Bailyn joins the imagination and organizing skills of a master scholar to powerful stylistic gifts....It should be equally admired by and equally as attractive to the general reader as to the professional historian."
-- R. C. Simmons, Journal of American Studies
"[Bailyn's] concern -- his passion -- is to make the emigrants and their experiences live once more.... His fusions -- of the general and the particular, of the abstract and the concrete, of thought and feeling -- are the ideal of modern historical writing."
