Storm Gathering by Treese, Lorett
Storm Gathering: The Penn Family and the American Revolution
by Treese, Lorett
 
Based on Penn Family papers, this book tells the story of William Penn's heirs and their precarious ownership of Pennsylvania in the eighteenth century. Focusing on Thomas and John Penn, the last two proprietors, the author recounts the various struggles they faced with the Paxton Boys and the Indians on the frontier, Benjamin Franklin's drive for the establishment of a royal colony in the legislature, and finally the growing rift between the colonists and Britain, which would lead to the Revolution and the divestment of Penn family power in Pennsylvania.
