award-winning authors Christopher Collier and James Lincoln Collier
demonstrate this in a compelling series aimed at young readers. Covering
American history from the founding of Jamestown through present day,
these volumes explore far beyond the dates and events of a historical
chronicle to present a moving illumination of the ideas, opinions,
attitudes, and tribulations that led to the birth of this great nation.
The United States Enters the World Stage
covers the years 1867 through 1919. This book gives detailed accounts
of America’s emergence as a world power from the Alaska Purchase through
