Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 7 UpTwo noteworthy, clearly written volumes. The Gathering Storm covers the post-Revolutionary years through 1829, while Bound for Glory covers World War I through the start of the Great Depression. Both titles are excellent overviews, paying close attention to how ordinary (and some extraordinary) African Americans lived. The books begin with chronological timetables that give readers a sense of the times. Bound for Glory provides particularly good coverage of the overlooked artists of the Harlem Renaissance and the black heroes of World War I. The black-and-white illustrations are excellent, especially in their depiction of the life of the average person. Two important additions to library collections.Elizabeth M.
