America's Story Vol. 1 Set
History comes alive in the stories and adventures of explorers and pioneers who saw in America the chance to live a dream — to freely worship God, to have the chance to own land, and the search for wealth and opportunities. It is also the story of cultures that at times cooperated or clashed, as well as distant rulers and countries who saw a chance to expand their power through conflict or treaty. Volume One in this series for your elementary students includes: •Beautiful historic illustrations, photographs, maps, and cultural connections •Examples of history you can still see today all across this great land •Important narratives of the people and places that stand for some of the most pivotal moments in America’s development.
