Legacy: A Sweeping Epic of America's Earliest Days
In 1666, 14-year-old Richard Prouty, (the author's Great X 8 Grandfather) came to America's Plymouth Colony. Here he started a new life of hard work, and plans for the future. Eventually settling in Scituate, (he was one of the founders) he marries Damaris Torry. But the new colony faces its perils, from disease, to pirate raids, to the King Phillips War, the greatest Indian War in American history. Richard, like so many of the other early settlers, had the courage and tenacity to stake his claim in the new world and start a legacy that, today, includes 30 million American descendants.
