Shaped with a clear political chronology, MAKING AMERICA reflects the variety of individual experiences and cultures that comprise American society. The authors' goal is to spark readers' curiosity and invite them to explore and "do" history rather than simply read about it. The book conveys the surprising twists and turns as well as the individual and collective tales of success and failure that are the real story of the American past. The strongly chronological narrative, together with visuals and an integrated program of learning aids, makes the historical content vivid and comprehensible.
