KIRKUS REVIEW

Short plays of American history, simply staged, and with small casts -- to display beliefs, causes, that are bases of American life. From Leif Ericsson, Columbus, Ponce de Leon, Balboa, Cortez, Magellan, De Soto, Coronado, Father Junipero Serra, Marquette and Joliet, La Salle -- to the settlements of Jamestown, Plymouth, Massachusetts Bay Colony, Maryland, Roger Williams', the English capture of New Amsterdam and the founding of Pennsylvania, this covers all early American history, from Northeast coast to the Straits of Magellan, from Atlantic to Pacific. In compact dialog are given the high points of discovery, exploration, colonization, faiths and principles. Patriotic type of entertainment, more suitable for schools than for adults, though club groups should note.
