Review:

This is the second book in the Trail Guide books. This one looks just as promising as the first one, reviewed above. This book concentrates on U.S. Geography and takes you on a tour, state-by-state, using the same basic format as above: the five-minute Geography Trails, and the Points of Interest, which take a little bit longer to explore. This is an EXCELLENT resource for U.S. Geography. Your child will be very familiar with the United States and each state independently when they are through with this course! --Holly Cameron, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine

Reading on, I saw that this book is one in a series of three, "all written with the busy teacher in mind." More and more promising! And then I read, "With a little guidance the first 2 or 3 weeks most students will work independently the remainder of the year." Well! Put that together with "multiple ages" and I'm practically sold! Now if the book will just live up to the promises...
...which I am happy to report, it does. --Eclectic Homeschool Online
