    This book gives a detailed, interesting account of United States history in a story-telling style. Full-color photographs and illustrations that support the text add to the learning experience. Timelines, profiles of historical figures, maps, charts, and graphs also help in learning and building map-reading skills. Meant to be used as an aid with any social studies curriculum, the book begins with an account of the arrival of the first Americans who traveled from Asia over the Bering Land Bridge and ends with a discussion of the information super highway of the twenty first century. The book is not written from a Christian perspective and religious references are not included.

    The book is broken down into ten units that tell of different eras in our history. Unit One tells about the Americas until the early 1500's. It discusses how people first came to the continent and tells of ancient Native American culture. Unit Two covers from 1492 to 1700 and shares the European exploration of America. Unit Three tells of the adventures that took place and the people involved during the colonial times of 1550 to 1775. Unit Four discusses the Revolutionary War and the beginning years of the nation from 1775 to 1810. Unit Five discusses the expansion of the U.S. from 1785 to 1860. Topics such as Lewis and Clark, The Erie Canal, the gold rush, and the Pony Express are covered. Unit Six tells about the Civil War, covering everything from slavery to Gettysburg to Lincoln's assassination. Unit Seven portrays the life events of the American people from 1865 to 1900. The railroad, pioneer life, and the Nez Perce are just a few of the topics covered in this section. Unit Eight covers from 1890-1920, including inventions like the airplane or ideas like the assembly line or the beginning of women's suffrage. Unit Nine tells of some struggles America overcame from 1914-1945, such as WW I, the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, and WW II, but it also lists some positive things that happened during the period, such as Jesse Owens winning Olympic medals and Charles Lindbergh crossing the Atlantic. The final unit covers 1950 to the present time.

    Students read about all these historical events in a pleasant manner, and included activities add interest. Activities include writing essays about events or people, identifying things on maps, filling out word puzzles, and creating time-lines. Answers included. ~ Rachel S.

    I wish this book had been around when I was in school nearly three decades ago! I didn't care much for history then as most books on the subject, textbook or otherwise, were dry and un-motivating to my adolescent mind. This addition to the Don't Know Much About books employs a conversational, question-and-answer style that presents history topics in such a way that you want to learn the answer instead of struggling to absorb the next factoid. I actually enjoyed learning about my country's history! 244 pgs. ~ Tom

    Starting with the immigration of even the earliest Native Americans, American History the Easy Way will lead you on a chronological study of this great country. Presented in a way that is intended to be grasped easily, the text is clear and thought provoking, and it is frequently divided by headings to make particular periods or events easy to find. To help with recall and retention, each section within a chapter ends with "links from the past to the present," "dates," "key points to remember," "key people to remember," and questions in the form of identification, true/false, and multiple-choice. The chapters end in the same way but also include several open-ended analysis questions for essay practice. The chapters break up US history in the following way: Nation of Immigrants, European Settlements in North America, American Revolution, Constitution and the Establishment of the New Nation, Sectionalism and Nationalism: 1801-1850, Growing Nation – Social Change: 1800-1860, Slavery and the Civil War, Changing Lifestyles: 1865-1914, From Panic to Empire, Turmoil of War and Depression, WWII and the Early Years of the Cold War, Civil Rights, Vietnam, the Cold War, and Watergate: 1960-1976, The Presidencies of Carter, Reagan, and Bush: 1977-1993, Social Changes: 1945-2002, and Recent History: the Clinton Years and After.

    This unique atlas explores American history through 20 significant journeys of the past.

Each page holds an enthralling account of that expedition and the history surrounding it told through the words of a specific person on the journey. Colorful maps outline the paths traveled, with significant points marked by a red numbered square and detailed by the corresponding caption. ~ Steph

    I'm always shocked when someone tells me they dislike history and find it boring. I've always loved history because it's the magnificent story of our past – triumphs, tragedies, endurance, courage, heartbreak, justice, injustice, adventure, freedom, change – how could that be boring? This treasury of stories shows readers that American history isn't just about dates and facts, it's about the amazing events that have brought our country to where it is today. Starting with the establishment of the first city in 1564 and ending with the election of 2000, it includes 100 stories that show America's character and its history. All kinds of stories are included; well-known and obscure, funny and sad, admirable and disgraceful. The stories are easy-to-read narratives of true events or descriptions remarkable accomplishments. Each story is about 3-4 pages long and pages feature full-color illustrations. Stories are presented chronologically but there are notes following some of them that identify other stories that link together as well as suggestions for further reading. Help students see that history is full of captivating, motivating, heartbreaking, and interesting stories with this great treasury. By Jennifer Armstrong, 358 pgs, hc. ~ Rachel

    I believe if there's one way to instantly improve anything, it's to add food! This book has exactly the right idea. Instead of just reading your way through history, why not eat through it? Beginning with the first Thanksgiving, you can cook representative foods from colonial times, Louisiana territory, the Alamo, pioneer times, plantation life, the transcontinental railroad days, the Victorian era, the twenties, the Great Depression, World War II, the fifties, the sixties and seventies, and finally the eighties and nineties. Each time period has around four pages of brief, informative history reading (complete with humorous illustrations) and then gets down to the recipes. (Getting started cooking pages with tips are included in the very beginning.) Key terms in the history reading are in bold, and there are fun food facts to read from that time period. The recipes are great symbols of the time periods. For example, after reading about "Remember the Alamo!", students can make tacos, Texas ribs, and meatless chili. When you are studying about plantation life, it won't do but to fix up a plate of fried chicken wings, corn bread, and sweet potato pie, with a peaches and cream sundae on the side. From first Thanksgiving golden harvest pumpkin bread, to colonial clam chowder all the way to nineties blueberry muffins, this is one U.S. history study the whole family will join you for. - Melissa

    Ballads are somewhat of a lost art form, but historically, they were a way to pass on to future generations the events and details from history. From Sing ‘n Learn comes this musical approach to reinforce your American History study. Nine ballads (chapters) move through key elements of US history, from Roanoke/Jamestown, Revolutionary and Civil War, to the Transcontinental Railroad.

    Each chapter follows the same format. First, you’ll find the ballad printed in full (the audio is located in chronological order on the CD). Then the author expands on specific details highlighted in each song. The author clarifies that this is not a history textbook, but the elaboration contains a good amount of explanation. Each chapter ends with a set of Discussion Questions (no answers included). At the book’s end, each ballad is reprinted in full text and includes the melody line and chords.

    Black and white illustrations are included throughout. Some illustrations appear as though they’ve been photocopied and some are occasionally applied as a “watermark” behind text, making the text a little more challenging to read. Another minor negative is that in adding CDs, book references to song locations being on specific cassette tapes were not updated. However, songs are placed chronologically on each CD. One CD includes music and vocals; one contains instrumental only. This set could serve as a tool for your auditory learners and a simple way to remember key points of American history. 8 1/2” x 10 3/4”, 159 pp, sc. ~ Ruth

    From Columbus' exploration of America on October 12, 1492 to the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, this book explains the history behind 42 memorable dates in our country's history. The historical significance behind each date is explained in a two to four page chapter. What sets this book apart is that the events are placed into the context of God's activity, using anecdotes, speeches, and excerpts from sermons taken from the time period covered in each chapter. For example, the D-Day (1944) chapter includes President Roosevelt's prayer for the soldiers and their families, and the Kent State University Shootings chapter (1970) recounts how a religious revival took place at Asbury College in Kentucky. Some of the other events covered in this book are the Mayflower Compact (1620), the Constitution (1787), the Wright Brothers' First Flight (1903), World War I (1914-18), and the Fall of Communism (1989). Notes at the end of each chapter provide bibliographical (or website) references. By Rebecca Price Janney. 175 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa

    For all your hands-on, kinesthetic, visual, arty, or just-plain-bored-with-textbook students, I recommend this! With 26 different map activities covering various periods from the first Americans (stated as arriving 15,000 years ago) to the landing on the moon, each major period of US history is included. Each map activity includes a two page spread with directions on how to make the maps, followed by two reproducible map pages which usually require tape and scissors to complete. The period-applicable maps, once completed, become 3-D maps with moveable pieces. All are in black and white and can be colored, if desired. The directions pages also include teaching points on the geography and history surrounding the maps. A really neat supplement to any US history program, some of the periods mapped include: Vikings discover America, settlements at Roanoke and Jamestown, piracy on the high seas, Washington crosses the Delaware, the trail of tears, western cattle trails, building the Panama Canal, and many more. pb. ~ Zach
