Engages readers by tracing the individual and collective journeys of Americans.

Offering a blend of political and social histories, The American Journey shows that living up to American ideals is an ongoing voyage–one that has become increasingly more inclusive of different groups and ideas. With the goal of making American history accessible, the authors use a strong, chronologically-organized narrative, with an emphasis on regional balance, and provide readers with the tools they need to understand history. The concise edition concentrates on the journey of individuals and groups that shape America with a trade-like, full color narrative format.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The American Journey is the most engaging text that I have seen

recently. I appreciate the chronological organization of the text

and completely agree with the authors in regard to student’s

comprehension and retention.”

–Cathleen Koken, Pueblo Community College

“The greatest strengths include the primary sources, the level

of detail in the chapters, and the stories which draw the reader

in the beginning of the chapter.”

–Andria Crosson, University of Texas at San Antonio

“While cogent arguments come forth constantly in this text–

arguments that help illustrate the American story as a real journey

–this book is also full of excellent stories that teach the reader a great

deal about the living, breathing experience of being American.”

–Duke Richey, University of North Texas

“The textbook does well in not only examining diversity but in placing

different groups into interaction with one another.”

–Susanna Michele Lee, North Carolina State University

“The regional balance is one of the strongest features of the Goldfield

text. It makes the point that many trends are national, but also explains

clearly how these trends varied in importance from region to region.”

–Joann Carpenter, Florida State College at Jacksonville
