About this title:

Synopsis: The 1803 purchase of the Louisiana Territory doubled the size of the United States and helped kick off the period of westward expansion. Readers take a look at President Jeffersons role in the deal, why the United States wanted this territory, and why France agreed to the sale. Chapters describe the background of the purchase as well as its aftermath and impact on the course of American history.

From School Library Journal: Gr 2-4-Concise, well-organized content makes these slim volumes a lot more informative than a cursory glance suggests. Short chapters (one to two pages each) chronicle the causes, effects, events, and people that figured in the westward expansion. The writing is concise but packed with facts. For example, Gold Rush explains that, "Passengers traveled on dirty, crowded ships for six months or longer. Food often spoiled and water was not always safe to drink." The illustrations are a mix of photos and gorgeous reproductions of archival paintings and drawings, all of which complement the texts to a tee. The colorful, bordered captions add helpful information. α(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal. LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
