Summary

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, Colonists and Independence 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 andWar. 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

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Focusing on specific time periods within American history, the books in the All about America series pack a wealth of information into an attractively designed package. Double-page spreads, enhanced with photographs, color illustrations, reproductions, artifacts, maps, and sidebars, introduce each topic in detail. Colonists and Independence traces the development of the American colonies (including the establishment of slavery), the growing unrest with England, and the new government that came out of war. All titles give careful consideration to Native American history, highlighting their displacement, noting that colonists and Indians often attacked each other, and emphasizing that more settlers died of disease than from attacks. A glossary, time line, and suggested books and websites add to this series' research value.--Leeper, Angel. Copyright 2010 Booklist"
