The photographs and descriptions by individuals involved in the time periods create a very interesting perspective and really bring the time period to life. The events and personal accounts chosen highlight the diversity of America and the huge panorama of events and changes that occurred and impacted society in major ways. The book is well indexed and the layout is conducive to browsing for entertainment or using the information to accent school work.
