Covering the history of the United States from the first settlements to the mid-20th century, this volume is aimed at grades 7–8, and weaves the story of the Catholic Church in America together with standard historical themes. It includes discussions of the U.S. and state constitutions, a civics treatment of the U.S. Constitution, and historical treatments of European, non-European, and Native American cultures in the United States. This book combines the lavish use of color photos, drawings, and maps with excellent writing, thumbnail biographies, and the lives of saints. Told in a narrative format to engage student interest and invite them into the story of history, this volume and history series is the best available today.
