KIRKUS REVIEW

A handbook of information on the way of life during more than 300 years of American being. Differs from the several volumed work on the Scribner list (practically identical titles) in this being an analysis of the houses, furniture, clothes, food, agriculture, transportation, industry, community life -- each subject covered under each period, whereas the Scribner book takes, for example, the subject of transportation and cross sections the chronology to trace down the history of the subject. Fully illustrated, with the expanded captions, which should help make the book useful for reference in history, English, geography -- and extra-curriculum activities such as drama.
