    An extremely informative book about the first settlers in America: their landing; first year; and typical lives of men, women, and youngsters in the colony. Although from a secular publisher, their religious nature and motive in coming to America is very clear, as the author does an excellent job of projecting the general character and even speech of the Pilgrims. Sewall has researched her subject well, apparently using journal, diaries and other writings of those who arrived on the Mayflower. Quotes from some of these sources are interspersed throughout.

    This book does a marvelous job of recreating the trip to the New World on the Mayflower and showing exactly what it was like for the pilgrims. Using photographs taken aboard the Mayflower II (a true-to-life reproduction vessel built in 1957) with actors dressed in realist garb from the original voyage's era, the book shares the details of the journey. A little background on why the pilgrims were sailing, provisions they had to bring, delays and their eventual departure, the weather, various people who made the journey, the route taken and navigation of the time period, what daily life was like aboard the ship and special occurrences, how and where the pilgrims landed, and a little about what they did after they landed are all covered in an informative and interesting way. The accompanying photographs of the recreated journey really do bring the story to life and make it seem more real. This is an excellent supplement to your study of early American history and will really help students understand the details about this legendary voyage.

      Chapter 1 introduces students to economics as the engine by which capitalism, free enterprise, private property and the relationship between employees, employers, and entrepreneurs create jobs. Additionally, this chapter also explores government regulation, supply and demand, and economic factors such as taking risks, investments and profit and loss. The evolution of economic precepts and principles, from ancient Greece, Rome, Europe and the Dark Ages are explored. Historical persons that shaped modern economic theory are presented including Moses, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, William Penn, Winston Churchill, Margret Thatcher, and Ronald Reagan. This chapter also delves into the Industrial Revolution, World Wars I and II, and the Cold War, and their impact on economics. Worth mentioning, the impact of an economy based on Biblical principles is discussed for its historical value and includes a look at Marxism and Darwinian theory. Chapter 2 further explores the history of the Judeo-Christian and European influences that were foundational to the capitalism in the United States. The authors compare the historical teachings of Catholic and Ana-Baptist beliefs and provide a brief overview of the Protestant reformation and the influences of the Church on economic philosophy. This is done neutrally with no scripture verse support or proselytizing noted.  An in-depth look is given to the economic significance of the US Constitution, Mayflower Compact and the Bill of Rights. Students will briefly examine the impact of the industry, railroads, progressive education, unions, the New Deal, welfare, immigration, private organizations and “trickle-down economics.” Chapter 3 reviews contemporary economic issues including banking, creditors, credit cards, checking accounts, debt, impulse buying, mortgages, dividends, stock market, collateral, loans, bankruptcies, insurance, real estate, gross and net income, inflation, IRAs and 401Ks, tax audits, and much more.  Students are also introduced to the pros and cons of starting and operating a small business, along with post high school options: college, trade school, and military.

      A captivating look at the foundations of economic philosophy that will appeal to students-especially those without a desire to study the math and deeper theories of economic thought. All texts and activity books are softcover. ~Deanne

    If there is one supplementary reference you'll want to have on your shelf when studying American history at the upper level, this is it. This incredible resource contains the text of over 70 original documents spanning 300 years of U.S. History. The documents are divided into eight chapters, including Colonial times, the War for Independence, the young Republic, the pre-Civil War years, the Civil War, Reconstruction and expansion, World War I and II, and modern times (1945-2002). I appreciate the uncomplicated nature of the book. The author, realizing that there are entire books written about many of these documents, has kept simple. Each document is briefly introduced, usually along with a small but full-color reproduction of the document. The text of the document, or the portion that is the most poignant, is then provided in a shaded box. Although some spellings have been modernized for ease in reading, the words themselves have been preserved. After the documents, a short "What They Were Saying" section provides responses to the document from newspapers, speeches, politicians and other people from the time the document was written. These fascinating entries provide us just a little bit of a peek into the window of time to understand the context of the document and the effect that it had on Americans. With such "biggies" contained here such as the Mayflower Compact, the Stamp Act, the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Louisiana Purchase Treaty, the Dred Scott Decision, the Constitution of the Confederate States, the Emancipation Proclamation, the Reconstruction Act, the Social Security Act, the Civil Rights Act, and the USA Patriot Act, this book will easily find a use with any U.S. history curriculum you may be using. 224 pgs, pb. – Jess
