Publishers Description
The story of America begins in the Old World, for the first American settlers came from Europe, bringing their heritage with them to the New World. "The Old World and America," a popular and beloved middle-school history text, documents the Western World from the beginning of mankind through ancient times--emphasizing Greek and Roman civilization--Christ's coming and the founding of the Church, the Middle Ages, and the Renaissance, to the discovery of the New World and its exploration.
Not only does this textbook recount the events which led history from the beginning to the discovery of the New World, but it also details the various civilizations upon which our Western world is built--primarily, the culture of the Catholic Church and its vital influence on both the Old World and the New.
Includes study questions, tests, and topics for discussion. (394 pgs., PB.)

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A stimulating but never overpowering history textbook  Jul 25, 2000
As the author's name and title suggests, this history text book is written by a Catholic priest and it is therefore a Catholic perspective of history that is presented. We are told that "'The Old World and America' tells the story of the Western World from the beginning of mankind - through ancient times, Greek and Roman civilizations, the comming of Christ and founding of the Catholic Church, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the discovery and exploration of America, the 'New World'". The course is aimed at grades 5 - 8, and it should take the average child about 3 years to obtain a good understanding of the material presented. The great advantage of this text book is the clarity with which the information is presented. Each period of history under consideration receives an interesting yet brief (but never skimpy) treatment. The child's interest is stimulated so that the text book can be used as a launching pad for further reading about the particular period of history being studied. My family does not live in America but, with few adaptations, the book is just as relevant to our own country. A universally excellent textbook ideally suited for homeschooling !
