Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-Two series offerings that present facets of U.S. history. Alter traces the development of Williamsburg and continues with the restoration process that has made the town a living museum today. Full-color photographs, maps, and reproductions add interest. Williams discusses the arrival of Africans in North America, the introduction of slavery in the 17th century, and the contributions of blacks in the Revolutionary War. The book has some confusing statements ("In Africa- Slaves were considered unequal, but they were treated like other family members. This is similar to the experiences of early slaves in America-"). Explanatory black-and-white and full-color reproductions appear throughout. The Web sites listed in African-Americans were inaccessible and one of the two mentioned in Williamsburg was essentially a commercial travel guide.-Anne Knickerbocker, formerly at Cedar Brook Elementary School, Houston, TX Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
