Booklist Review

Gr. 5-8. The Thirteen Colonies series will include a volume on each of the original colonies and one entitled The Thirteen Colonies: Original Sources. The current volume offers a cogently written history of the region from 1613, when Adriaen Block claimed it for the Dutch, until 1788, when it became the fifth state to join the U.S. Illustrations include black-and-white reproductions of period portraits, engravings, and paintings, as well as a few photos and a map of the colonies. Though the format does little to make this volume stand out from other series on the colonies, the writing is clear and forthright, even about the brutal, seventeenth-century Indian wars, and well-chosen quotations suggest the thinking and attitudes of the times. Source notes, annotated bibliographies, and lists of Internet resources round out the volume. --Carolyn Phelan
