Item Description...
Continuing the biographical approach to teaching history found in his Stories of Great Americans for Little Americans, Eggleston draws a more in-depth picture of the development of the United States using the stories of the living and breathing Americans who made it all happen. Especially valuable for home schoolers or those simply wishing to supplement their children's education, here you'll find all the features you would expect in a teacher-friendly textbook: study questions after each chapter, definitions of pertinent words, maps and illustrations, and an index for easy cross reference.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great book!  May 3, 2007
My first grader loves this book! It is narrative in tone -- think Story of the World meets American History. I highly recommend it!
First Book in American History  Aug 7, 2006
This copyright is 1996....but initial copyright is 1889, and that is how it reads. Bought for my granchildren who at 11 and 14 are offput by the style. Recommend for historical value but not to improve history skills for today's generation...not going to happen!
Awesome as homeschoolers backbone for US history  Aug 20, 2005
This reminds me of The Story of the World, but only for US history. Each chapter is a great read-aloud for a 3rd grader. Then there are a few questions at the end of the chapter. The style of writing is interesting without being hokey. My kindergardener was happy listening too it also and I learned new things as well!
Our 9 year son old loved this  Jul 29, 2004
When our son was 9, I think my sister sent us an Eggleston book that my son liked. Anyway, after that, I bought this book, and he loved it. It contains mostly biographies. These men as children had different lives than our children, but the feelings they felt are exactly the same. No other book has touched him as this book did (fiction, non-fiction, etc). He asked me repeatedly to buy him another Eggleston book, but there were no others that I could buy until recently (he's 12 now). He has developed a tremendous love for history, and this book was probably a big part of that.

Along the way, some things you get are ok, some are good, but there may be that one thing that stands above everything else. This was that one thing for us. So I decided to come back and put in this review.
Refreshing Historical Perspective  Oct 3, 2003
I teach history to Middle School students. One of the greatest charms of old History books like this one is the simple fact that they were written at a time when people had a different perspective on events. They thus provide us with both the history covered and the historical perspective of a different period of time.

History, especially for children, is meant to be told as a coherent story and, like any story, includes the perspective of the author. It is precicely the author's selection and coherent integration of the facts that he deems most important that makes history interesting. A more objective understanding of the past is achieved by reading multiple perspectives and integrating an understanding of each author's bias with their work.

Modern history books that try to present history without judgement, assessment, or character succeed only in compiling a confusing, politically correct menagerie of cluttered facts that bores and confuses the reader.

A simple example: Thanksgiving is a celebration originating from the discovery that private property ownership lead to plentiful harvest. The preceding commonwealth experiments of the Plymouth and Jamestown collonists where all production was shared and divided equally lead to "the starving time" that lasted multiple years. No modern textbook has the honesty to present these simple facts as they actually happened, thus confusing the true meaning of American Thanksgiving and distorting the valuable lesson that was learned by our forefathers. Eggleston does.
