Summary

Summary

History is dramatic -- and the renowned, award-winning authors Christopher Collier and James Lincoln Collier demonstrate this in this compelling series aimed at young readers.Covering American history from the founding of Jamestown through present day, these volumes explore far beyond the dates and events of a historical chronicle to present a moving illumination of the ideas, opinions, attitudes and tribulations that led to the birth of this great nation.


Author Notes

Christopher Collins is a writer of historical novels for children.

Collier has taught at both the University of Bridgeport and the University of Connecticut. He has also served as Connecticut's State Historian.

The violence and profanity in Collier's works is very controversial, rendering them banned from reading curriculums in certain schools. Despite the controversy, Collier's book My Brother Sam is Dead won a Newberry Honor in 1975. He has also written War Comes to Willie Freeman, and The Literature of Connecticut History and Roger Sherman's Connecticut for adults.
