School Library Journal Review

Gr 7 Up-These titles offer comprehensive, vivid, and thought-provoking looks at the struggles and triumphs of our Founding Mothers and the women who followed them in shaping our nation. Through succinct, informative text, each heavily illustrated volume incorporates the history of three major groups of people: the Natives, European settlers, and African slaves. Featured quotes from books, articles, letters, and speeches bring the history to life, and "Breakthrough Biography" and "Women of Courage and Conviction" sidebars introduce key historical figures. Readers new to the subject will find quick access to quality information, and history-savvy youngsters may find something new to ponder. Unbiased, engaging writing makes these books excellent additions to most collections.-Sara Saxton, Wasilla Meta-Rose Public Library, Wasilla, AK (c) Copyright 2011.
