KIRKUS REVIEW

An excellent introduction to American history for beginning readers, this highlights the early colonists' life in the New World. Beginning with the first Jamestown settlement and continuing through the establishment of plantations in the South, the arrival in New England of the Pilgrims and Puritans, the founding of the Dutch colony in New York and the Quaker colony in Philadelphia, this concludes with the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Young readers will be able to differentiate between the customs and ideals of each group -- for the emphasis here is on ways of life -- food, housing, dress, occupations, recreation, etc.
