North Carolina was the location of the first English attempt to colonize the New World. But the mysterious fate of the members of that "Lost Colony" and Virginia Dare, the first English child born in America, is only one of the intriguing historical aspects of this unique state.

Review:

"A compilation of excerpts from primary documents whose subjects range from the origins of European settlement in the New World to the establishment of the Bill of Rights. The sources provide coverage of certain underrepresented groups, with letters from women, examples of rules that children should follow, and a bill asking African Americans to enlist in the Continental Army. The shortened versions of the documents offer a good introduction to materials written at the beginning of our nation's history and allow students to grasp some of the main issues. The editor does a good job of explaining material that could be difficult by including a translation in brackets of words that are not common today."
-- School Library Journal (October 2002) (School Library Journal 20021001)

"These titles will be useful for reports."
-- School Library Journal (August 2002) (School Library Journal 20020801)

"Written in a clear, concise conversational tone, these overviews present information effectively."
-- School Library Journal (April 2002) (School Library Journal 20020401)

The language is tighter, more succint, and on a higher reading level."
-- School Library Journal (April 2002) (School Library Journal 20020401)

"Solid additions on subjects that are always researched in schools, made even more valuable because of the primary-source material."
-- School Library Journal (April 2002) (School Library Journal 20020401)

"The thorough treatment in these books provides detailed insight into why and how the colonies came to be, even though the layout gives the books a strong textbook feel. Collections needing a boost or with high demand for resources covering early American history would appreciate this series. Heaviest users will be fact finders and report writers. Recommended."
-- Book Report (May 2002) (Book Report 20020501)
