At SAR members’ request, David Stuart presents Part II (1770's-- 1940) of his American Family saga of the Vandergrifts, Harts, Goldsboroughs and Dunsmores. As immigrants arrived in early European colonies, they not only disrupted Native American worlds on the Atlantic seaboard, but also struggled to find new ways of adapting to both unfamiliar and highly fluid social, economic, political, and ecological realms. Stuart analyzes their pursuit of success, which later became known as the American dream. It was, and remains, a moving target.
