Summary: " The American Journey is the most engaging text that I have seen recently. I appreciate the chronological organization of the text and completely agree with the authors in regard to student's comprehension and retention." -CATHLEEN KOKEN, Pueblo Community College "The greatest strengths include the primary sources, the level of detail in the chapters, and the stories which draw the reader in the beginning of the chapter." -ANDRIA CROSSON, University of Texas at San Antonio "While cogent arguments come forth constantly in this text- arguments that help illustrate the American story as a real journey -this book is also full of excellent stories that teach the reader a great deal about the living, breathing experience of being American." -DUKE RICHEY, University of North Texas "The textbook does well in not only examining diversity but in placing different groups into interaction with one another." -SUSANNA MICHELE LEE, North Carolina State University "The regional balance is one of the strongest features of the Goldfield text. It makes the point that many trends are national, but also explains clearly how these trends varied in importance from region to region." -JOANN CARPENTER, Florida State College at Jacksonville.
