"As the leader of one of the most progressive religious sects to emerge from England, William Penn envisioned Pennsylvania as an example of how a God-inspired society could succeed in the wilderness of North America. " However, once in the New World, Quakers pursued both wealth and power, proving that even the most devout could not resist the temptations of the New World. Despite this moral struggle, Pennsylvania, succeeded beyond anyone's imagination. By Penn's death in 1718, Pennsylvania was well on its way to becoming the most commercially successful colonial enterprise in English history. "This new addition to the Library of American Biography Series vividly follows Penn from his time in England, the son of a revered war hero, to his controversial conversion to the Quaker faith, to the realization of his dream: the holy experiment, Pennsylvania. " "Quaker, Pennsylvania, American colonies, William Penn. " United States Survey 1, Upper-level colonial history courses
