This textbook is a fairly comprehensive look at United States history. The book is divided into six units, and each unit is divided into two or three chapters, with each chapter being split into four or five lessons. This makes the book easily digestible, without losing sight of overall themes and time periods. The book is colorful, filled with pictures and maps and text features. There are vocabulary words, "Reading Check" and "Map Skill" questions, as well as supplementary materials included in each section, like poems or brief biographies. There are end-of-chapter reviews and activities. Each chapter begins with a "You are There": a short paragraph or two, written to "you" and what is going on in "your" life if you had lived during the time period of that chapter. It has everything from 'You live Spain and have read a book written years ago by an explorer named Marco Polo...' to 'You are walking along and discover a piece of gold in a stream...' to 'You receive a letter from your cousin in Poland, who says the Germans have just invaded...' It certainly seeks to make history real and relevant to the reader.
