Description

This important book is based on the Penn family papers and reveals their influence on the state of Pennsylvania as the American colonies strive for independence. Bringing to the fore the drama of a revolution in the making, The Storm Gathering is a crucial insight into American life and culture on the brink of a world turned upside down. Lorett Treese examines in detail the lives and deeds of Thomas and John Penn as their estates are imperiled by Indians and the Paxton Boys, and as the family is caught up in the chaos of encroaching revolution. It was a time when landowners were forced to choose sides and this revealing book examines in detail the options available to wealthy and powerful Americans.
