Most Helpful Customer Reviews

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By R. Green on October 31, 2012
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The kindle edition costs substantially less yet in the description it says "with maps and illustrations." However, there are no maps and illustrations -- text only. I am using this with a homeschool curriculum, and when the curriculum says to refer to a map in the book for an activity, I'm left without. So, if you'll be needing the illustrations as well (which always make it more interesting to the student)you may want to spend the extra money on the print edition.

**Two and a half months later it looks like the description has been changed and states "no illustrations" for the Kindle edition.
