Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
In many ways Massachusetts stands at the center of America's colonial history. Plymouth Rock represents one of the earliest landing points in the New World. The first Thanksgiving and the Pilgrim's progress in colonial America were part and parcel of early American history. The Salem Witch Trials, the Boston Massacre, the Battle of Bunker Hill, and the Boston Tea Party are all iconic events in the saga of the nation. All of these events, and many more, are touched upon in this illustrated recounting of the Massachusetts Colony. In this slim volume writer Kevin Cunningham brings to life keynote events and people from that long ago era in the history of Massachusetts. Topics such as early colonial governance, the struggle for religious freedom, and everyday life in the Massachusetts Colony all are presented in a concise but readable manner. Each page also features a period illustration that brings to life the content. This approach yields good results as The Massachusetts Colony represents a workable introduction to the subject at hand.
