Interesting from beginning to end. I thought the added afterword (the book was updated post 9/11) was a little repetitious, but a point worth making. ( )

There was as much ground-breaking history as I had expected. There were some tidbits that held my interest but this book seemed pretty run-of-the-mill as far as history books go. ( )

This was a truly revelling historical book to the history of America and all the missing parts to the school education textbooks. To where it has described the lives and political opinions of our founding fathers and presidents. Also the wars that came along with the revolutionary war and the civil war in the following 100 years. To a more modern explanation of our history it went in depth into that cold and world wars. Also the branches of our political system and rules of law.
One thing I personally found interesting was the Boston tea party. Yes a common historical event, but an untrue full one at that. The basic story has been told that the British raised the taxes on tea, yet the real reason was that the taxes were lowered. Surprising, but the taxes previously were collected and instated by the colonialist against the taxes. So the British lowered them yes, but sent in their own troops to enforce the taxes that were lowered. The colonist jobs were, in majority, tea smugglers or black marketers for tea. So when the British started in forcing the taxes and controlled the black-market there was a sudden rapid downfall in jobs and cash flow. Thoughs events eventually led to the Boston tea party. As shown this book covered all the branches of American history from early to modern, and an educational read. ( )

A good informational read about all things westward. The book tells readers about the Pioneers who traveled to the west and the things they encountered there. The book tells readers about the Pioneers, the Lewis and Clarke expeditions, the Mountain Men, and the Oregon Gold Rush. Readers will get a little information regarding all of these topics and more. I liked the format of this book because it gave readers the opportunity to read a little at a time. Each spread contains three to four questions which they follow up with detailed answers. This is a good book for readers wanting to learn more about the covered wagon days in America’s history.

This book was written to interest children in grades 3-6 and is on a 5.9 reading level. ( )
