Summary
In 1700, ten sparsely settled colonies clung precariously to the Atlantic coast of the vast American continent, each far more firmly attached to the Old World by ties of politics, economy, and culture than they were to each other. By 1800, sixteen states, united by a common government, were poised to exploit the seemingly endless resources of a new and independent nation. Yet throughout this century of enormous changes and challenges, one factor remained constant: no single description embodied the majority of its inhabitants, no one life-style embraced a "typical America." Rich or poor, urban or rural, male or female, young or old, native-born or immigrant, northerner or southerner, slave or free, white or of color - the mixture of these characteristics and a host of others within each individual determined the shape and opportunities of his or her everyday life. Americans of the eighteenth century were in the end as they had been in the beginning, as "various as their land."
