** From the Publisher’s Website: **
A History of US contains none of the intimidation that comes with behemoth texts. It tells the tale of America in 10 user-friendly small, illustrated books. (An 11th source book, with original documents, is also available.) Whether it’s standing on the podium in Seneca Falls with the Suffragettes or riding on the first subway car beneath New York City in 1907, the books in Joy Hakim’s A History of Us series weave together exciting stories that bring American history to life.
This 10-book series includes:
- First Americans: Prehistory-1600
- Making Thirteen Colonies: 1600-1740
- From Colonies to Country: 1735-1791
- The New Nation: 1789-1850

- Reconstructing America: 1865-1890
- An Age of Extremes: 1889-1917
