About this title
Book by Minks, Benton, Minks, LouiseFrom School Library Journal:
Grade 6 Up?In explaining the causes and effects of this 70-year period of conflict, the Minks neatly define the roots of the long-running enmity between England and France. How this antagonism carried over to the colonies and combined with the European concept of ownership to result in Native American hostilities is simply and effectively told. While never losing focus of their historical narrative, the authors include unusual stories and facts, separated from the main text in boxes, to keep students' attention. Throughout the book, the cumulative effect of events that alienated colonists is noted. The black-and-white reproductions are generally of good quality; however, there is only one small map of battle locations, and the volume has a textbooklike appearance. The footnotes, glossary, and annotated further reading and additional works consulted lists are commendable.?Anita Palladino, Finkelstein Memorial Library, Spring Valley, NY
