We stick to their genuine descendants for twelve generations as they weave their well past the dramatic defining occasions in that history.
          this can be the tale of standard genuine humans in notable situations. They farm, they try, they triumph, and so they lose. they're variously hanged and fusilladed through an Imperial overlord, and mercilessly impaled and massacred via savage African tyrants. regardless of the percentages, they persevere to create a special Western nation on a deadly continent. finally, the load falls to the writer to explain the dying of this primary limb of the West to wither.
