Many instructors specify that their students must include primary sources in research papers. Such requirements often compel students to seek help at their school or public library, not generally repositories for archived original documents. One might hope to discover a wealth of documents to help satisfy this informational need. Each book covers a topic in American history such as the Louisiana Purchase, the Lewis and Clark expedition, Ellis Island, the Trail of Tears, the Underground Railroad, and Appomattox. Yet despite the promise of the series title, the books are mainly original texts that explore the given topic, amply illustrated with maps, photographs, and illustrations. These photographs and illustrations form the bulk of the primary source material. For example, in The Louisiana Purchase, there are six maps, sixteen illustrations, and three documents. Six of the same maps and illustrations can be found in other volumes of the series. Only two of the documents are transcribed at the back of the book so that the reader can experience the original language. Ellis Island offers a more unusual selection of photographs, with three transcribed documents. But because the books are quite short, they are better used for elementary and middle school students rather than high school students. The series satisfactorily offers glimpses into the American past but lacks enough substance to be a solid reference tool for primary sources. With the availability of photographs, maps, and transcriptions online, it does not seem likely that an older student would find a need for such an elementary overview. On the other hand, if the students are just beginning to learn how to doresearch, how to recognize primary sources, or require an easy-to-digest explanation of a particular topic, this series could just fit the bill.
