In recounting the daily lives of ordinary citizens, David Heidler (history, Colorado State U.) and Jeanne Heidler (history, U.S. Air Force Academy) examine family, agricultural, military and religious life and the transition from an artisan economy to industrial capitalism. Although generally sanguine about the unity and spirit of the newly minted American people, the authors include a chapter on those who lived "beyond the mainstream." Written for a general audience, the text does not engage in current scholarly debates about the underpinnings and stability of the early republic, but it offers a detailed portrait of some of its citizens.
