    " This book goes into a lot of detail about our country's history, but it is heavily biased, so I find we need a lot of discussion with this one. "

    " This is a good general American History book, and that's what we used it for. It begins at the very beginning with exploration, not native americans, and ends at the beginning of the 20th Century. "
