A New York Times Bestseller

In the late 1960s, an archivist in the New York State Library discovered an astounding 12,000 pages of centuries-old documents from the Dutch colony centered on Manhattan. For the past thirty years, scholar Charles Gehring has been translating this national treasure, and now, Russell Shorto has used this vital material to construct a sweeping narrative of Manhattan's founding that gives a startling, fresh perspective on how America began.
