Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-The set concentrates on American history between the end of the Revolutionary War and the start of the Civil War. Volume one summarizes the early European discovery, exploration, and conquest of North and South America. It also explains the social and economic conditions that led to the Declaration of Independence (included) and subsequent war. From there on, the straightforward text highlights major figures and events in the struggle to establish a new nation's place in the world. While the text is simple and clear, the ideas it presents are neither simplistic nor cursory. Charts, maps, and cross-references (with volume and page number citations) are found throughout. Color versions of period artwork and full-color photographs with informative captions printed in white on solid color blocks appear throughout. Unfortunately, a number of the illustrations are poorly reproduced. Each volume ends with an annotated list of Web sites, a short list for further reading relevant to that volume, and a cumulative index. Fully one third of the final volume is comprised of useful appendixes such as a table of population figures and general population characteristics for all states and territories from 1790 through 1860. A glossary gives clear explanations of significant words and phrases such as "Dred Scott decision," "54-40 or fight," and "Wilmot Proviso." A useful purchase for both school and public libraries.-Ann G. Brouse, Steele Memorial Library, Elmira, NY Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
