    Terrific resource!!!

    The Essential American: A Patriot's Resource should be owned by every family in America. The book contains 25 documents and speeches which all Americans, regardless of political beliefs, should know. My daughter has already used both the book and the included DVD to help her research for her history class. (She got an A on the paper, by the way!) Cushman's introductions to the documents and speeches provide excellent insights and help to put the words into historical context.

    During these difficult times for many Americans, it is so good to be reminded why our country is so great. I am proud to be an American...these documents reinforce these feelings. I will buy this book as graduation presents (perhaps they would be better "Welcome to High School/College presents because of its usefulness) and for every patriot I know. Thank you Ms. Cushman for such a valuable resource!
