Descripción

After leaving the Church of England and joining the Quakers, William Penn proposed starting a new colony in America. Unwelcome in England and openly disliked by the Puritans in Massachusetts, Penn set out to establish his settlement apart from others the new state of Pennsylvania. His enthusiasm and trust turned the Quaker colony into a success, but his messy personal finances repeatedly landed him in prison. In an era when most people would not stand up to the British monarchy or the religious establishment, Penn was a strong leader for reliigous freedom in the New World. William Penn explores this fascinating man's life through engaging narrative, a complement of photographs, and handy reference features.
