A History of US

By Joy Hakim. This lively history by the author of the acclaimed ten-volume series A History of US explores the birth and growth of freedom in America over the centuries—and the tensions, conflicts, and triumphs it has sparked. Filled with beautiful photos and artwork that complement "story-filled" text, the simply written volume makes history a compelling, thematic narrative rather than just a dull recitation of facts. Hakim relates gripping accounts of both famous and ordinary Americans in order to show how "liberty and justice for all is both our legacy and our destination." This is also the companion book to the PBS series based on A History of US. Updated through President Obama's 2012 reelection. Index. Illustrated. Social Studies School Service. Index. 8½" x 11". Approximately 430 pages. ©2013. Note: ebook is in epub format and requires an epub reader or epub browser plug-in.
