From Booklist:

Gr. 3-5. From the Life in the New American Nation series comes this introduction to the Louisiana Purchase. Alagna does a good job of putting the complicated event into manageable terms for her audience. She explains why the territory was a desirable purchase and goes into detail about the effects of doubling the size of the U.S. Western expansion, the balance between slave and free states, and even questions about the constitutionality of the purchase are discussed in a way readers can understand. This is not flawless; too much space is taken up by the Lewis and Clark expedition. Moreover, there is no good map of the purchase's territory, a real oversight. Historic illustrations are generic. Other titles in the series include The Monroe Doctrine, The War of 1812, and The Pinckney Treaty. Glossary appended. Ilene Cooper
