Overview

All About America: Colonists and Independence by Sally Senzell Isaacs

About the Series

Action-packed and meticulously researched, with specially-commissioned illustration, detailed reconstructions and original artwork from each period, reading lists, and resources for further study, this series is an immersive introduction to the history that shaped America.

Starting with Europe's increasing interest in North America in the 1600's, and covering everything up to ratification of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, All About America: Colonists and Independence by Sally Senzell Isaacs is an accessible account of the social and geographic forces that led to the founding of the United States. From the Pilgrim's journey and the Mayflower Compact, to the day-today life in the early colonies, the role slavery played in building the nation, and the political crisis which lead to Revolution and War. With dynamic full-bleed spreads featuring historical objects, cutaway illustrations, scenes from daily life, and accessible age-appropriate text, this book breathes new life into this vital period in American history, and makes it understandable to today's contemporary readers
