Grade 7 Up—Facts On File-in color! More than 200 full-color maps and assorted color and black-and-white photographs and illustrations, all captioned and appearing on most pages, make this an attractive book, sure to captivate readers. Text and readable, topical maps present the history of America, beginning with the crossing of the Bering Strait by Asiatic nomads through to the economic, social, and cultural changes of the late 20th century and the early years of the 21st. The maps depict exploration, territorial expansion, trade and immigration routes, climate, distribution of natural resources, urban development, and regional distribution of peoples and culture. The book is divided into 10 eras with a total of 32 chapters, each containing quotes from prominent citizens of the period. People of color and the laboring classes are not forgotten. There are a few typos and errors, but overall this is a welcome addition that can be used as a supplement to textbooks or as a stand-alone resource.—Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt. Carmel, IL
