Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-An overview of the Revolution from the end of the French and Indian War (1763) to the signing of the Treaty of Paris (1783). The clear, well-written text is enhanced with black-and-white and sepia reproductions and woodcuts, eyewitness quotes, and sidebars. Maps of the territories, Colonies, and important battles are included as well. As in most texts that cover this time period, Native Americans do not fare well. In the brief section on "Minorities in the American Revolution," readers are told that many Indians agreed to fight for the British in order to stop Americans from moving onto their lands. The summary statement that, "According to the victorious Americans, these native peoples had chosen the wrong side and deserved such [harsh] treatment" implies that their history may have been different if they had backed the winners. For more in-depth information on the Indians' experience, try Joseph Bruchac's Lasting Echoes: An Oral History of Native American People (Harcourt, 1997). Jim Murphy's A Young Patriot: The American Revolution as Experienced by One Boy (Clarion, 1996) offers a personal viewpoint and Stuart Murray's American Revolution (DK, 2002) has more visual documentation.-G.
