Europeans came to the American colonies in the 1600s and 1700s in search of a better life. They worked hard and built farms, homes, and towns. But they were still under Great Britain’s rule. Many wanted to make their own laws, but that meant going to war against a rich and powerful country. Will you: Travel to Virginia as an indentured servant? Choose between careers as a sailor or a soldier in Massachusetts? Decide which side you’ll take as the country marches closer to revolution?

I love these books! I have read some other books like this one and love them! U should try them.
This book is confusing to follow for young children, I tried to read it with my son and was not interested. Maybe the actual book would have been better. We read this on the Nook and it was very hard to follow and find your place.
