Review:
This ten volume history of the United States is written as if a good storyteller were telling it. It has depth and includes quotes, reproductions of prints, definitions, and other information asides. Short chapters make it possible to hold the attention of children as young as six, though it is intended for ten - fourteen-year-olds. Titles in the series are: THE FIRST AMERICANS; MAKING THIRTEEN COLONIES; FROM COLONIES TO COUNTRY; THE NEW NATION; LIBERTY FOR ALL; WAR, TERRIBLE WAR; RECONSTRUCTION AND REFORM; AN AGE OF EXTREMES; WAR, PEACE, AND ALL THAT JAZZ; ALL THE PEOPLE.
