KIRKUS REVIEW

Lengyel spends too much of what boils down to less than 30 pages of text on general colonial history -- from the first Mongoloid discoverers of America to the ""simplified calendar"" of events leading to the Revolution (none of them occurring in New Hampshire) and the ratification of the Constitution. In between items specific to the colony -- early exploration and settlement, charter and boundary disputes, Indian wars and Indian customs (though the one example of ""Indian legend"" seems more likely to be of white origin), and early education including Dartmouth's origin as a school for Indians -- are sketchily surveyed for fifth graders desperate for short and relatively easy answers.
