It is unfortunate that I am forced to use this book for a history course. I have a general interest in History, and find this book to be a biased, opinionated, and completely lacking in historical data pertinent to the birth of this great nation. Don't get me wrong, it will tell you Columbus "hit the high seas in 1492" but it is very vague to the onset of how this country came about. Even more so vague about the part that Columbus had to beg for the money to set sail. He didn't just hop a boat to get here. It generally references "pilgrims" and "indians" and I personally feel the information is the biased opinion and interpretation of the author. I am in my middle ages, I have studied history and historical events, and already don't like my class that hasn't even started...just because of this book. I can't help but to think, "no wonder this generation is unaware of the strength and great freedoms of this country." This book is SERIOUSLY lacking in detail of historical events of our founding fathers.
Here is an example... and I quote verbatim from the book, (pg 3 the very beginning) "It reminds us that history is not fixed; facts change, as does our way of looking at them." NO... history is what it is, the authors interpretation of FACTS may change, but FACTS remain the same. And since you cant change the past... in my unofficial opinion... that makes history FIXED!
This book is a sad disgrace.

I needed this book for two history classes so I bought the two volumes in one book and although it is heavier it was a better deal than buying each seperate. It is unlike any other history textbook I have read. It is detailed and written more as a story than informative textbook. Great for readers.

This book was exactly what the teacher required, only problem is that he hasn't required us to read anything from it.
