    American Heritage Book of Great American Speeches for Young People

    Students will be drawn into this challenging collection of speeches by presidents, black leaders, women of all ages and groups, native Americans, athletes, award winning writers, etc. Occasional photos will spur the student on to read, especially FDR with his dog Fala and Nixon with his dog Checkers!

    Taking the 'Dry' Out of Our History

    I came upon this book while shopping for my grandchildren. Flipping through, I became interested enough to start reading it myself. Literally, a history of our country told by the people who lived in each era, this collection of speeches humanizes both the famous and the little known orators, and through them broadens our concept of the times. I loved it!

    American Heritage Book of Great American Speeches for Young People

    We Americans were shocked by 9/11. Our freedoms are fragile and our history is more important to us. What better way for young people to learn about our freedoms than by reading the fine words of great American speeches from Powhatan in 1609 through Charles Robb in 2000. Over 100 speeches of leaders: 11 presidents, Nobel and Pulitzer prize winners, athletes, women, native Americans, black leaders, athletes, etc. I, personally, was gratified to read the words of Angelina Grimke from Charleston, SC and Mark Twain and two speeches by Frederick Douglas. The photos enhanced many texts, especially Nixon's dog and FDR's dog!! A must for students to read. Laura Bush, our first lady, has recommended reading our great leaders' words in their original speeches.

    BOOK RANKS HIGH WITH MIDDLE SCHOOL SPEAKERS

    Book of Great American Speeches for Young People is a book no speech teacher should be without. This is a book of oratorical speeches at your fingertips. The editor, Suzanne McIntire, did all speech coaches a big favor by editing speeches which are especially helpful for middle school/junior high speech assignments and oratorical interp competition.
