As a nation that for centuries has boasted religious freedom, the recent political race for the Presidency stirs us as a people to examine our standards regarding cultural diversity and what that phrase means to us as Americans. The question is: are we free, or are we merely tolerant?

Manhattan Seeds of the Big Apple, invites you to journey along with the Waldron Family for a rare glimpse inside the area that now is one of the most influential in the world.
It is a story that transports the reader to the Broadway of the mid-1600's bringing vividly to life an all but lost rich segment of American History. On the blocks of New Amsterdam live settlers from dozens of global points, each family facing "cultural diversity" centuries before that expression becomes a topic of scholarly discussion. Over and over again promised rights are tested and rejected. What they sought-both Christian and Jew-was far more than tolerance.
Central character Resolved Waldron, Sheriff for Dutch Governor, Peter Stuyvesant, must arrest Englishman John Bowne whose Quaker wife, Hannah, is preaching. The arrest of Bowne and subsequent trial is widely believed to be the first determination of religious freedom in North America.
F Thibaut of the Language Workshop for Children, New York, New York, writes of this well researched novel, "As an educational administrator not only do I recommend MANHATTAN SEEDS OF THE BIG APPLE for school libraries, but as an excellent addition to any social studies curriculum; a truly unique book which should become a classic resource about life and times of New York's early Dutch settlers."
