Written simply because I enjoy writing and because I have the time to do so. For some of the latter, it may even prove useful. So, more of a wine than a pipe dream. By early though, this had whittled itself down to a mere fifteen and last minute problems for some reduced this to the final eight.
What had also shrunk by April was the size of our aspiration. And the dates had moved forward by a week, meaning that one of us Jane could only come to Galicia for what would have been the now-aborted Portugal leg. Happily, though, she could manage a couple of days at the start of the walk before she went home for half-term grandparent duties.

Stone and Kuznick review the history of the last years of the U.S. and offer dismaying but critical insights into what has been both our domestic and foreign policy. What features were common to all of England’s southern colonies, and what features were peculiar to each one?
Why were two southern colonies initially resistant to slavery? Which was the most important factor shaping the development of Indian relations, the one-crop plantation economy, or slavery?
