Sinopsis: This distinctive, class-tested primary source reader tells America’s story through the words and other creative expressions of the ordinary and extraordinary Americans who shaped it. Now featuring the contributions of new co-author John M. Giggie, an award-winning teacher and scholar from the University of Alabama, America Firsthand offers a remarkable range of first-person perspectives that bring the past vividly to life — from an African American minister’s message of racial liberation, to the prison notes of suffragists, to a writer’s recollections of Sputnik. “Points of View” sections provide varied vantage points on important topics, and “Visual Portfolios” draw students into interpreting the visual record. This carefully crafted, ready-to-go collection saves instructors time and effort in finding consistently engaging and informative sources.
