Synopsis

The Illustrated Timeline of American History A Crash Course in Words and Pictures by Alan Axelrod

Alan Axelrod takes us on a lively historical tour that captures the country's evolution, milestones and major figures, from the earliest prehistoric settlements to the present day. He makes it easy and entertaining to learn about the first people who put down roots here; what happened after the Europeans explored, conquered, and established colonies; and how the United States developed into a nation that influences world events. Introductions provide context for such important issues as culture, religion, politics and economics, plus sidebars give more details for a deeper understanding. In addition, all text entries are colour-coded so readers will know immediately which realms were affected by an event.
