Dust Cover
In 2013, researching a science-fiction saga, pulp novelist James LaFond began investigating the living conditions of the American laboring class prior to 1776, using primary source documents from the period rarely utilized by academic historians. In Plantation America, the focus is on the planter’s view of American servitude and on the little-studied Plantation of Mary-Land, overlooked in many general histories despite a wealth of primary sources.
To The Reader
This entire work was written as a preamble to In This New Israel, as context for that study’s focus on New England and Congregationalist Planting and Colonizing patterns. I have endeavored to summarize redundant sources.

Dedicated to the lost memory of Moses Roper
“Mary-Land (I must confess) cannot boast of her plenty of Sheep here, as other Countries; not but that they will thrive and increase here, as well as in any place of the World besides, but few desire them, because they commonly draw down the Wolves among the Plantations, as well by the sweetness of their flesh, as by the humility of their nature, in not making a defensive resistance against the rough dealing of a ravenous Enemy.
-George Alsop, 1665
