Footsteps In A New World: The Story of Tomas Sympson
Footsteps in a New World is a story that describes what it might have been like to establish a homestead in 17th century Maryland. Moreover, it answers questions as to what factors might have compelled such an adventure into an unknown world. Adhering to historical accounts of the founding of Maryland while exploring family history, fact and fiction merge to become an inspiring tale of a young man's dream of land, freedom, and family. Tomas Sympson traveled from Scotland in 1635 with the intention of settling in the Roman Catholic colony of Maryland. He left footprints in time that, in discovering, perhaps we shall take heart, to achieve and to pursue what is our own American Dream.
