Overview

For thousands of years, the first residents of the Western Hemisphere had established unique worlds for themselves. From the arrival of their earliest ancestors across the Bering Land Bridge in 10,000 BCE until 500 years ago, American Indians flourished on the North, Central, and South American continents. There, they developed national identities and established the cornerstones of civilized native life. But the Indians' world would intersect with a people as curious as their migrating ancestors had been. After thousands of years of Indian dominance over the future United States, Europeans introduced new ideas, new technologies, and a new religion. In The New World: Prehistory to 1542, learn how these newcomers forever affected the lives of those native peoples who had long called America their home.

Discovering U.S. History spans the complex and dramatic history of the United States from prehistoric times to the present day. Through a compelling narrative, thought-provoking boxed insets, and lively illustrations, each volume brings to life the people and events that have shaped the nation.
