Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

-This compendium is a veritable treasure trove of information, divided into 19 chapters that cover such topics as "Diet and Health," "Religion," "The Cities," "Science and Technology," "Crime and Violence," and "Popular Life and Recreation." There are general details of Colonial life as well as obscure and difficult-to-find facts that students need and teachers always want. Copious tables, maps, and charts cover everything from small-town population statistics to the heights of Colonial soldiers. Readers will find lists of the pre-1763 Indian treaties, perpetual calendars, the price of wheat, rice exports, lists of Governors and Chief Justices, distribution of craft workers, wage rates, occupations of New York taxpayers, and a chronology from 2,000,000 B.C.E to A.D. 1763. The text is also sprinkled with black-and-white reproductions of period art and photographs of the Colonial areas as they appear today. Young adults will enjoy leafing through all of the fascinating facts and curious bits of information, but the well-organized, complete, and accessible text will also provide an invaluable resource for research and term papers.
