9781590180112: The Thirteen Colonies - Primary Sources

The Thirteen Colonies series explores the roots of the United States of America. Each book in the series traces the history of a colony -- its earliest European arrivals, its indigenous people, and its growth. Vivid detail brings to life the day-to-day existence of colonial Americans, with all its hardship and toil. The growing discontent with British rule, and the reasons behind it, are explained clearly, along with accounts of each colony's role in the Revolution and in the forging of a new nation. Each volume is enhanced with a multitude of lively primary and secondary source quotations, and a separate volume of primary source materials provides firsthand accounts of the nation's early history in the words of the people who lived it. Included are:

  • Primary and secondary source quotations
  • Footnotes
  • Illustrations and timelines
  • Annotated bibliographies

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."
