I needed a concise history of the US for adult ESOL students. It qualifies as concise, but some of the parts are too emotional. I am using it as an outline and creating my own written history.

Dry and boring but required for graduation from high school in my state. Teacher's Edition is nicely laid out and helpful.

I use BJU Press materials for homeschooling often. They have high academic standards and a Christian worldview. They also do not sugarcoat history. The teacher's manuals are well organized and have the same text as the student editions, with helpful ideas for activities and projects, rather than just an answer key.

This book was easy to follow and updated from older books we'd seen. I would recommend this book for United States history.

Although there was a problem with the description of the book, I was so pleased to get a quick and extremely satisfactory resolution to the problem. I enjoyed dealing with the company.

We're a Secular home schooling family but this book was recommended to us. I was a bit wary about a 'special' Christian version of history but my son (15) is enjoying the history and contrary to what is sometimes in the news, this seems objective considering our country's religious roots and the very context of our history.

Goes into great detail about events and background - including the politics behind it all. Easy to read and jam packed with good information. Like I said, we were surprised, very pleasantly so despite what I read from other reviewers here. You can't unwrite history - we have to accept the good and the bad about our past and I think this books presents it all fairly, without 'rewriting' and white washing.

"A few slave holders were undeniably cruel. Examples of slaves beaten to death were not common, neither were they unknown. The majority of slave holders treated their slaves well."

As long as you consider being held in bondage, having your children sold, not being allowed the dignity of marriage, being forced to submit to the sexual desires of the master being treated well.

"Perhaps the best known work of propaganda to come from the Depression was John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath...Other forms of propaganda included rumors of mortgage foreclosures, mass evictions, and hunger riots and exaggerated statistics representing the number of unemployed and homeless people in America."

Glad to know it was just rumors. Too bad my great-grandmother didn't know that. Her husband died in 1929 leaving her a nice insurance policy to care for their 3 young daughters and a house that he had put more than 50% down on 11 yrs before. I guess it was a rumor when the bank froze her account, along with millions of others. It must surely be propaganda that the first month she couldn't make the house note she and her young children were out on the street - without one cent for the equity or the house full of fine furnishings. Surely it was her imagination that some kindly banker bought her entire savings for 10 cents on the $ - which she took in desperation.

These sociopaths who write this garbage call themselves "christian"?
