Author's Porpose

The authors porpose in writing this book is to inform you about how people lived in the american colonies were .The reason I think this is because the author is saying were the colonies are and how people survived,also it talks about the slaves some people in different colonies had and also the clothing people wore.The author even said sometimes people in the colonies had war with the native american's and how people farmed.Then finally the author just wrote even though they had rough times they can also have fun.
