Summary

Summary

Persecution...adventure...prosperity. These are just three of the reasons that early settlers and pioneers set sail or lit out across the land bound for parts unknown. What did they find when they got there? What kind of houses did they build? How different were their clothes from modern dress? What kind of interaction took place with the Native Americans they encountered? These questions and many more are answered in this exciting five-volume social history series.

School Library Journal Review

Gr 4-8-Numerous color illustrations, interesting format, and easy-to-read font size are characteristic of these handsome books. Each chapter concentrates on a different aspect of everyday life such as early settlers, home life, childhood, religion, difficulties, and amusements. Sidebars highlight related material and a recipe is included for each region. While there is little emphasis on actual historical events in the narratives, chronologies are appended. Bright, high-quality reproductions appear on almost every double-page spread. A number of color photographs of reenactments of Colonial life are included, with photo credits on the verso of the title page in each volume. Most of the information in these volumes can be found elsewhere. However, the attractive arrangement in single volumes by geographic area gives this series a unique angle. The eye-catching format will invite both browsers and report writers.-Marilyn Long Graham, Lee County Library System, Estero, FL (c) Copyright 2010.
