Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The colonization of New York first began in the early 1600s when European explorers started arriving. The Iroquois Indians resided in the area at the time. The Iroquois traded goods with European settlers until battles over land began erupting. By the late 1700s most of the Iroquois had left the area and people from France, Germany, England, and Sweden occupied the land. This book explains the history of New York from its discovery by Europeans to its independence. Information on everyday colonial life is also provided. Brief descriptions of early schools, farm and work life, trade, and religious freedom are given. The final chapter discusses when and how New York joined the United States. The book has simple sentences, easy terminology, and several maps, graphs, and colorful pictures that support the content. It is a useful and helpful source that will benefit any young reader wanting to learn more about United States history and the American colonies. 2006, Capstone Press, Ages 8 to 12.
