Synopsis

Student Almanac of Hispanic American History by Greenwood Press

A major influence on both North and South America from the time of Columbus' arrival in 1492, Hispanics helped to shape the United States as it grew from 13 colonies to the 50 states we know today. This two-volume set traces the history of Hispanic Americans from their earliest history to their continuing contributions to our country today. After an introduction to each chapter, A-Z entries identify people, places, events, and terms for an in-depth look at all things Hispanic-American. Volume 1: From European Contact to the U.S.-Mexican War, Prehistory-1848 Volume 2: From the California Gold Rush to Today, 1949-Present

Reviews

The history of Hispanic Americans is attractively and concisely presented in this almanac designed for middle and junior high students....Controversial topics are treated in a balanced manner. Excerpts from primary sources, such as a description of Aztec human sacrifice written by Jesuit missionary Jose de Acosta, add depth and interest. The layout of the almanac is clean and inviting. Text boxes, time lines, illustrations, photographs, and maps add information and visual appeal. This resource will be helpful to students looking for background or summary information on a specific topic....[t]his almanac should be a useful reference tool for this important and often-assigned homework subject. -VOYA
