Description: In this epic, Pulitzer Prize-winning, work, Edwin G. Burrows and Mike Wallace have produced a monumental volume of history -- one that ranges from the Indian tribes that settled in and around the island of Manna-hata, to the consolidation of the five boroughs into Greater New York in 1898. It is an extraordinary narrative, a story as vast and as varied as the city it chronicles, and it underscores that the history of New York is the story of our nation.

Readers will relive the tumultuous early years of New Amsterdam under the Dutch West India Company, Peter Stuyvesant's despotic regime, slave resistance and revolt, the Revolutionary War and the defeat of Washington's army on Brooklyn Heights, New York as the nation's first capital, the infamous draft riots of the Civil War, the great flood of immigrants, the rise of mass entertainment such as vaudeville and Coney Island, the building of the Brooklyn Bridge, and the birth of the skyscraper. Here too is a cast of thousands who left their mark on this great city.

The events and people who crowd these pages guarantee that this is no mere local history. It is in fact a portrait of the heart and soul of America, and a book that will mesmerize everyone curious about the peaks and valleys of American life as found in the greatest city on earth.
