Synopsis

Exploring the Mountain States Through Literature by Sharyl G. Smith

Exploring the United States through Literature describes the best of current print and nonprint materials teachers can use with their students to study individual states. Each volume covers a different geographic area and presents selected materials that represent the uniquely rich and varied history, diversity, geography, industries, resources, famous people, and contemporary culture of each state in that region. Much more than a series of detailed bibliographies, the volumes in the Exploring the United States through Literature series also describe classroom-tested activities that directly relate to each source.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
