Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 5-9
These titles explore the people, events, systems, conflicts, and compromises that forged the United States. They provide copious detail on everything from pirates to Puritans. Trade explores the complex financial underpinnings of both settlement and ultimately rebellion. Daily Living provides a window into everyday life by examining the food, families, and expectations of the time. In Government , the authors go beyond the familiar Compacts to Continental Congress progression and delve into Native American tribal structures and the pacts of individuals. Well organized, the books follow a chronological approach and discuss the competing views and interests of colonists, merchants, and statesmen. Interactions, alliances, and treaties with Native American tribes are also discussed. The volumes are attractive, with many color drawings, explanatory maps, and interesting sidebars. They go into considerable depth, and while clearly informative, they sometimes contain language that may tax some students' attention spans.
