The first of our history textbooks, this volume is aimed at grades 5-6 and teaches American history and geography. Produced using the highest quality in design, color, illustrations, paper and bindings, this textbook tells the story of North America--the Indian nations, European colonization, and the founding and history of the United States up to the Twentieth Century. Told as a series of historically accurate stories, the textbook includes thumbnail biographies, lives of the saints, maps, illustrations, and other supplemental material. The lavish use of color photos, drawings, and maps, combined with the excellent writing of highly qualified teachers, authors and editors, make this volume and history series the best available today.

This textbook tells the story of North America from the very beginning up to the twentieth century. Told in a pioneering narrative format, this book boldly includes the lives of the saints, who were indispensable figures in history.
