Publishers Weekly
Our Fifty States by Mark H. Bockenhauer and Stephen F. Cunha takes readers on a tour of America, state by state. Beginning with an introduction by Jimmy Carter, the book (organized by region) covers each state's history, economic strengths and other noteworthy facts. Maps with clearly labeled cities and rivers accompany brief timelines illustrated with photos and drawings, plus sidebars with state stats (capital, area, population, industries, state bird and flower, "Did you know?" trivia sections and more).
