A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The fate and grim existence of the early settlers of New Sweden, which became Wilmington, Delaware. Beginning in 1638 with the Swedish ships Kalmar Nyckel and Gripen, and followed by several other expeditions, a total of about 200 Swedes and Finns settled in the colony. The book reviews the Atlantic journry, the crews and equipment on board, and the fate of some of the individual expeditions. The role that participants took in agriculture, building, religion and other activities is reviewed. The colony's early governor Johan Printz, called 'Big Belly' by the Indians, is depicted in all his magnificence. While the actual colony only survived for 17 years, most of the settlers stayed on as powers and governance shifted in the developing new land.
