Don't think that because it is such a small country with only about 17 million people, it should be neglected. The Netherlands has a long history, with a high influence on our cultures, trading routes, the stock market, business, and art.

The Dutch were all over the world. They 'owned' and colonized a big portion of what was then the known world. They were among the first settlers, had the biggest haven and biggest fleet for some time. The Dutch East-Indian Trading Company, or VOC, is probably the biggest or at least one of the biggest companies that has ever existed, with its shareholders, its ships, its spices and trading routes, and so much more. Learn more about what happened in the same area that's currently the United States, South Africa, Indonesia, and so many areas across the world.

In this book, we will begin with the Dutch settlers on the east coast of the United States, their settlements in Indonesia and other Asian countries, and their vast group of colonists in South Africa.
