The Brief Edition of "The American Journey" was created by rewriting and cutting to condense text, and by using fewer photographs, maps, and charts to illustrate the text. Volume I of "The American Journey" introduces readers to the key features of American political, social, and economic history from the 1600's to the Reconstruction, 1865-1877. Written in a clear, engaging style with a straightforward chronological organization, it provides readers with a solid framework for understanding the past. It gives prominent coverage to the West and South and highlights the importance of religion in American history. It traces the emergence of distinctively American ideals and the way the conflict between those ideals and reality has shaped our nation's development. It brings alive the crucial issues and events behind the continuing effort of Americans to live up to their ideals. Compelling stories, ample use of quotations, and excerpts from primary sources bring the past vividly alive. Volume I encompasses the complete American history experience from transplantation, 1600-1685 and the creation of new worlds to Reconstruction, 1865-1877. For history enthusiasts and those looking for a review of American political, social and economic history.
