The story of the New World, according to John Butman and Simon Targett, begins not with pilgrims or swashbuckling adventurers, but with sheep. New World, Inc.: The Making of America by England's Merchant Adventurers, recasts the nation's early settlers as corporate lackeys in the service of His or Her Majesty.

It's a fascinating look at what happened before Daniel Webster pushed the story of sheep aside and promoted the story of the Pilgrims, in an attempt to quash the emerging slave-based story of cotton.
